After spending the past seven years in the NFL, Watsonville native Ty Sambrailo is stepping away from the game of football and officially retired from the professional ranks.
According to the Tennessee Titans website, the team announced on Oct. 12 that the 29-year-old offensive tackle was placed on the Reserve-Retired list.
Sambrailo, who was a standout at St. Francis High, played with three different teams during his stint in the pros.
The 6-foot-5, 311-pound lineman was an immediate impact at Colorado State and spent all four years with the school. He was selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round (59th overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Sambrailo was part of the team that won Super Bowl 50.
In 2017, he was traded by the Broncos to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round draft pick. He spent three seasons in Atlanta before he was released on March 16, 2020. The Titans signed him as a free agent just nine days later.
In 2020, Sambrailo appeared in 10 games, with five starts at left tackle before suffering a knee injury that resulted in him being placed on injured reserve, according to Titans officials.
He played in four games this season, including one start in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 19.
