Panthers Offensive Tackle Gross Set To Retire

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Panthers offensive tackle Jordan Gross is saying goodbye to the NFL after 11 seasons.

Gross, 33, was a first-round pick by Carolina in 2003 and started 167 games - all for the Panthers. He went to his third Pro Bowl this past season as an alternate.

Gross' contract had expired with the Panthers this offseason, but there was still some question as to his return. He went on vacation with his family last week in Idaho to contemplate whether or not to retire.

The decision creates a void for the Panthers at left tackle.
