Wimbley finished his career with the Titans by spending his last three seasons there after previously playing for the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders.
The linebacker slowed down in his last two seasons as he only came up with five sacks over that span, but his career got off to a fast start as he notched 11 sacks as a rookie with the Browns in 2006.
Wimbley’s play dropped off after that though, and he was eventually traded to the Raiders in 2010. He re-discovered his form in Oakland, and he registered nine sacks in the 2010 season.
He followed that up with a seven-sack season in 2011, but his production dipped after he was released by the Raiders and signed with the Titans.
Wimbley said that he plans to spend more time with his family in retirement. The Titans will look to move on with their newly signed linebacker Brian Orakpo as they move forward with rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota.
