Baltimore Ravens OL John Urshel Retires At 26

-

The Baltimore Ravens are losing some offensive line depth just weeks before the season is set to begin.

On Thursday, the team announced in a statement that offensive lineman John Urshel, who was competing for the starting center job, is retiring from the NFL at the age of 26.

Urschel was a fifth-round pick of the Ravens in the 2014 NFL Draft and made 13 starts for the team. Over the course of his three years in Baltimore, Urschel appeared in 40 total games.

“This morning John Urschel informed me of his decision to retire from football,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. “We respect John and respect his decision. We appreciate his efforts over the past three years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Urschel is currently a Ph.D. candidate in mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

It’s very clear that Urschel has a bright future ahead of himself outside of football, and we’d like to wish him the best in the next chapter of his career.
