Another former Green Bay Packers offensive lineman announced his retirement, Thursday. Josh Sitton, a member of the green and gold from 2008-2015, will retire after 11 NFL seasons. This comes on the tails of T.J. Lang and Jordy Nelson's retirements in recent weeks.

Sitton will be best remembered for protecting quarterback Aaron Rodgers on their way to a victory in Super Bowl XLV. He also was voted as a first-team All-Pro in 2014 and was a 4-time Pro Bowler.

The Packers went to Twitter to congratulate Sitton on a fantastic career:

In the fall of 2016, Sitton was cut by the Green Bay Packers and signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bears.

Last year, Sitton signed a two-year contract with the Miami Dolphins, but he played just one game in a Dolphin’s uniform before being sidelined by a torn rotator cuff.
