NFL: Seahawks DE Kerney retires

Associated Press

RENTON, Wash. Seattle Seahawks defensive end Patrick Kerney has announced his retirement.

The two-time Pro Bowl selection and 2007 All-Pro said in a statement released by the team on Tuesday that he wants to continue his career, but "the toll that has been taken on my body will no longer allow me to."

The 33-year-old Kerney has tried to play following shoulder surgeries in the seasons since his last Pro Bowl year in 2007.

Kerney was drafted 30th overall by the Atlanta Falcons in 1999. He played eight seasons for the Falcons and three for Seattle.
