According to ESPN’s Field Yates, New Orleans Saints starting center Max Unger has retired. This is huge news for the Saints.

With free agency just a few days in, the franchise would still have time to find his replacement. He spent the last four season with the team.

During his entire tenure with the team, he missed just one game. He started 63 out of 64 games.

The 32-year-old Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i native was acquired by the Saints in a March 10, 2015 trade. He was traded by the Seattle Seahawks, along with the 31st overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, to the Saints, to New Orleans.

In exchange, Seattle received a 2015 fourth-round draft pick and tight end Jimmy Graham.

According to Yates, who broke the story, Unger had one-year left on his contract. He will now go on the reserve/retired list.

He was a three-time Pro Bowler, including in 2018. He was a Super Bowl Champion when the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2, 2014 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
