Former LSU great Alan Faneca retires from the NFL

Former John Curtis and LSU standout Alan Faneca announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday.


Faneca, 34, was a nine-time Pro Bowler. He played last season with the Arizona Cardinals. He played 10 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being drafted by them in 1998, then one season with the New York Jets before going to Arizona.
He played in 206 NFL games, including 144 consecutive.
"I want to specifically thank the Steelers, Jets, and Cardinals. Each and every teammate, coach and front office employee has made a lasting impact on my life. It was a pleasure playing for first class organizations who surrounded me with incredibly dedicated individuals. I want to thank each of the beat writers that covered me throughout my career. These guys work hard and always treated me with respect. I want to also thank the fans. The roar of the crowd kept me going more than the fans will ever know.
"It is time to move on to the next chapter in my life. I can't wait to spend more time with my family. Playing in this league for as long as I did takes sacrifice, not only by me, but by each of them. I want to thank Julie, Annabelle and Burton for allowing me to fulfill all of my boyhood dreams. I couldn't have done it without you."
