Whitney Mercilus retires


Recommended Posts


The former Texans LB announced his retirement on Instagram today. The 26th pick of the 2012 NFL draft, Mercilius amassed 345 tackles, 57 sacks and 11 turnovers over a 10 year stint in Houston. Mercilus was cut last season and finished up his career in Green Bay, where he only played five games (recorded a sack while a Packer).

His skill was inconsistent - he had his best year in 2015, with 52 tackles and 12 sacks - but you can’t question his personality and willingness to play to what the team needed, and the leadership mantle he took on in his time in Houston.

Whitney Mercilus is truly one of the good guys in the NFL. Good to see him call it a day, I’m happy for the guy.
