Howard Balzer of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat is reporting that Ryan Tucker’s retirement from the Cleveland Browns came after the offensive lineman tested positive for steroids. That would have cost the veteran 8 games next season because he had been caught once before for using banned substances.
Tucker announced he was walking away from the game on sportstalk radio WKNR saying:
“We notified the league and we are notifying the Cleveland Browns family that I’m shutting it down. It’s time for me to go ahead and hang up the cleats and starting being a daddy and a husband. I’m going that route.”
