Saints RT Zach Strief Announces His Retirement After 12 Seasons

Saints right tackle Zach Strief, 34, announced his retirement Monday during a news conference, Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The 6-foot-7, 320-pound Strief entered the league in 2006 out of Northwestern as a seventh-round pick with the Saints. He began his career as a backup before becoming a mainstay at right tackle following Jon Stinchcomb’s retirement in 2010.

Strief played 12 seasons for the Saints, including the Super Bowl-winning 2009 season, and he appeared in 158 regular-season career games with 94 starts.

A knee injury, however, saw Strief play in just two games in 2017 before he landed on injured reserve during the Week 5 bye.
