Haloti Ngata retires

After a stellar 13-year career, Haloti Ngata announced his retirement Monday morning.

A former first-round pick (No. 12 overall) of the Baltimore Ravens in 2006, Ngata earned five Pro Bowl selections, was named Associated Press All-Pro five times, and won a Super Bowl with the Ravens.

Ngata spent nine years in Baltimore, three in Detroit, and his final season with the Eagles in 2018. In 13 games (nine starts) with Philadelphia, Ngata had 19 tackles, four tackles for loss, and one sack in 370 snaps (36 percent).

The most dominant nose tackle in the game earlier in his career, Ngata has a case for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In 180 regular-season games (174 starts), Ngata racked up 600 tackles, 55 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles, five interceptions, and five fumble recoveries. He added another 57 tackles, nine for loss, and 4.5 sacks in 19 playoff games.
