Ali Marpet, just 28 years old and making his first Pro Bowl last season, has long been regarded as one of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ top offensive linemen. His retirement took people by surprise.

According to reports, Ali Marpet made this decision because of his health.

Ali Marpet wrote: “After an awesome seven years playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, I have decided to retire from the game that has given me so much. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers club and its members have not only helped me achieve my dreams, but have grown me into what I am now. My self. Tampa Bay has become my home and I look forward to contributing to the community in the future. To my coaches, teammates, family and friends, an Instagram post cannot explain the profound impact you have had on me. I am forever grateful .Thank you Tampa Bay.”

Ali Marpet was a second-round pick in 2015, and his retirement could free up $10 million in cap space for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next season. During the 2018-2021 period, Ali Marpet’s pass-screen success rate was 93.7%, ranking ninth in the league among guards.
