February 7, 2019

Following a 10-year career, former Nebraska offensive lineman Matt Slauson announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday.

Slauson played for the New York Jets, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers following a Husker career that featured 35 starts from 2005-08.

Following his senior season, Slauson was a second-team All-Big 12 selection and was drafted by the Jets in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

“What an amazing dream this has all been,” Slauson said in an Instagram post. “It has been a very difficult decision but we are excited for what the next chapter holds.”

Slauson played for the Colts in 2018, starting in five games before he was placed on injured reserve in October with two broken vertebrae.
