Brian Waters missed only 3 starts as a Guard from 2002 to 2011.
Former NFL Guard Brian Waters, who missed half the 2013 season, has called it a career after 14 seasons in the NFL.
“After a long and wonderful career I have decided to retire,” Waters said in a statement. “I want to thank the coaches, players and fans of the three great organizations that I had the pleasure of working for. First the Dallas Cowboys for giving me my first and last chance of working in the NFL. I will always be grateful. Also the New England Patriots for the most successful season in my career. It was a great ride. Lastly the Kansas City Chiefs where I had pleasure of enjoying eleven wonderful seasons, which I will never forget.
“I want to thank the many family, friends and my hometown of Waxahachie, Texas for being great supporters. Finally I want to thank my kids for being my greatest motivations. I fought hard daily to make you proud me. If the rest of my life can be half as good as the last 15 years, I will be one of the luckiest people on earth.”
The Chiefs took Waters as an undrafted free agent out of North Texas in 2000.
Waters spent 11 seasons with the Chiefs, one with the Patriots, and a final year with the Cowboys. In 2012, Waters didn’t play.
A six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro, Waters was the 2009 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. He could be a potential candidate for the Pro Football Hall of Fame down the road.
