Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Chris Hoke has officially announced his retirement, the team announced on Wednesday.
Hoke will conduct a press conference on Thursday.
Signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of BYU in 2001, Hoke did not appear in a game until 2004 and has totaled 83 tackles and two quarterback sacks in 114 games over the last seven-plus seasons.
The 35-year-old suffered a “stinger” on October 16 and was placed on injured reserve on December 8. Hoke underwent surgery on his neck the following week that was expected to end his playing career.
