Luke Willson retires from football

One day after being re-signed by Seattle, tight end Luke Willson announced his retirement from the NFL. He said on his Twitter account that, “I have decided to walk away from the game of football. This off-season I went through some health issues and spent numerous days in the hospital with a severe pericardial effusion.”

Over the course of seven season, Willson appeared in 85-games with the Seahawks, catching 97 passes for 12-hundred 8-yards and 11-touchdowns.

Willson also thanked Seahawks fans for their support, saying, “To the city of Seattle and the 12’s: The love and support you’ve shown me throughout my time here has been truly special. Thank you. You really are the best fans in the world.”

Seattle quickly added depth back to the tight end room by signing Ian Bunting yesterday.
