Seahawk Mike Iupati Announces Retirement

Iupati, who played his final two seasons for the Seahawks as their starting left guard, told the Spokesman that his goal “was to hit 10 years,” a goal he exceeded while still playing at a high level. Injuries, however, including neck stingers in his final season, led to his decision to call it a career.

A four-time Pro-Bowler and one-time first-team All-Pro, Iupati spent most of his career in San Francisco (2010-2014) and Arizona (2015-2018), but the last stop of his career was also a special one even if it didn’t last as long. He said, “I fell in love with Seattle,” he said. “The organization was first class. They were so good to me.”
