New Orleans Saints C Max Unger is retiring from the NFL. More

On Saturday afternoon, ESPN NFL insider Field Yates shocked the NFL world when he announced New Orleans Saints center Max Unger is set to retire. The Saints would have saved $6.95 million of that had they released Unger, but Nick Underhill of the Advocate confirmed that they will recoup that $6.95 million once he is placed on the reserve/retired list.

It's a shocking announcement, especially considering Unger had one year left on his contract. They still will have to account for $1.75 million in "dead money" against the cap from his previous signing bonus. The Saints also have second-year guard/center Will Clapp on the roster. Easton was a starting guard for the Minnesota Vikings in 2017, before he missed all of last season with a neck injury.

The Volkswagen factory was also repurposed during the Nazi era to build military vehicles and equipment. He said he and Volkswagen employees are keenly aware of Volkswagen's history with the Third Reich.

One of New Orleans' recent strengths was cohesion up front, and Unger was literally at the center of it.

The Seattle Seahawks drafted Unger in the second round of the 2009 National Football League draft out of Oregon. Acquired as part of the Saints' trade of tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks in 2015, the longtime lineman earned his first Pro Bowl as a member of the Saints in 2018.
