Former Tennessee lineman Zach Fulton retires from the NFL
Zach Fulton has just become the fourth player to make the decision to retire following the start of training camp with the New York Giants.
Fulton’s decision comes after Todd Davis, Joe Looney and Kelvin Benjamin each made the same decision earlier in camp.
A former standout lineman for Tennessee, Fulton played seven seasons in the NFL, four with the Kansas City Chiefs and three with the Houston Texans.
He started 90 of the 107 games he appeared in during his NFL career. He was selected in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Chiefs.
“These are tough decisions on guys,” Giants coach Joe Judge said regarding the decision from veterans to retire. “As you get vets later in their career, they started training camp, it’s not uncommon for this to happen. Now, you don’t want it to happen, but you have to respect the decision each person makes for their family.”
Tennessee online sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
