Unger retires as Saints O-line loses Pro Bowler


METAIRIE, La. — Three-time Pro Bowl center Max Unger has decided to retire after 10 seasons, leaving a large void in the middle of the New Orleans Saints offensive line.

It’s unclear how long the Saints have known about Unger’s plan to retire, but they did visit with at least one free agent guard/center this week in Nick Easton.

Unger, who turns 33 next month, was officially placed on the NFL’s reserve/retired list Saturday. He had one year remaining on his contract.
