“In 2008 Liz and I began the journey of a lifetime,” he wrote. “8 years and 4 teams later we feel that it is time to call it a career in the NFL. When this journey began I was just hoping that I could make the team with extremely long odds in front of me as an undrafted rookie. I thought it would be amazing to say that I played a season or two with the Denver Broncos. I never imagined that God would keep opening door after door for me to continue in this game. I am incredibly grateful for His mercy, grace, and blessings He has given my family.”
Polumbus, a University of Colorado product, broke into the league with the Broncos as a UDFA in 2008. The tackle’s journey took him to the Seahawks, Falcons, and Washington before he came full circle and signed with Denver in the 2015 season. Now that he has a Super Bowl win and plenty of cash in the bank for his family, Polumbus is calling it a career.
Over the course of nine NFL seasons, Polumbus appeared in 112 games and made 57 starts.
