Zach Strief says Saints career 'exceeded my wildest imagination'
1 Attachment(s)
From Drew Brees, Cameron Jordan, Mark Ingram and Thomas Morstead to Bobby Hebert, Steve Gleason and Deuce McAllister, current and former New Orleans Saints players filled the media room at the team's training facility to honor and celebrate one of their own.

Zach Strief announced his retirement during a press conference Monday (March 12) after spending his entire 12-year career with the Saints.

The right tackle appeared in 158 regular-season games with 93 starts, a mark that ranks as the 11th-most games played by a Saint in team history and third-most among offensive linemen. Additionally, Strief appeared in 10 playoff games, which ranks second in team history, and started four of the postseason contests.

Not bad for a player selected in 2006 as a seventh-round NFL Draft pick (210th overall) out of Northwestern.

"My career here has exceeded my wildest imagination," Strief said. "I didn't think this was going to last through my first August, let alone 12 years.

"My admiration for the New Orleans Saints organization has grown daily throughout my career. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in it; it certainly was not accomplished alone."
