Default Mike Alstott Calls it a Career

Reports: Alstott to retire after 11 seasons in NFL
ESPN,com news services

Updated: August 9, 2007, 11:56 AM ET

TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Mike Alstott is expected to announce his retirement Thursday, multiple Tampa Bay-area media outlets reported.

The team has scheduled a 2 p.m. ET press conference in Tampa, at which the retirement is expected to be announced.

The announcement comes after Alstott missed a third consecutive day of workouts Thursday as the team prepared for its preseason opener Friday against the New England Patriots. His retirement is reportedly not injury-related.

Alstott, who was entering his 12th year with the Bucs, is the team's all-time leader in touchdowns with 71 and rushing touchdowns with 58.

He is second in team history with 5,088 yards rushing and third in scoring with 432 points.

There goes one of the real game-changers at fullback.

Now there is a running back I wish we'd have had in Pittsburgh. Good luck to him. I always enjoyed watching him run over rather than around defenders.

NFL Network did the Top Ten Power Backs last night and he was #10. They had some great footage of him smacking guys around. Some of his goal line work was amazing.

I agree he was a guy I would have liked to have seen in Black and Gold.

Great back and great person for the NFL. The Bucs will sorely miss his toughness.
