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

In a surprising move, New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl center Max Unger has chose 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.

The Saints will save $6.95 million in cash and salary-cap space that he was due in 2019.

Third-year center/guard Cameron Tom is among the likely candidates to compete for Unger's job. And they could turn to the free-agent market, though there aren't many top-ranked interior linemen still unsigned. His arrival in New Orleans was a part of the headline-making trade with the Seattle Seahawks for tight end Jimmy Graham in 2015.

Not only are the Saints losing a three-time Pro Bowler, Unger was one of the leaders within the New Orleans organization. He also missed just one game during his four seasons with the team, starting all 16 in both 2017 and 2018.

Unger played 10 National Football League seasons after being drafted in the second round of the 2009 National Football League draft.
