Michael Griffin says his 10-year NFL career was a blessing that lasted far longer than some of his former teammates at the University of Texas.

The two-time Pro Bowl safety officially ended that career Monday by signing a one-day contract with the Tennessee Titans and retiring with the franchise that drafted him with the 19th pick overall in 2007. Griffin Bobby Wagner Jersey , who wore No. 33 in his career, retired at the age of 33.

"I can't say enough, thank y'all, just thank y'all," Griffin said at a news conference inside the team's indoor practice field. "That's probably all I can say is just thank y'all because it's a blessing, and I'm so thankful to have that opportunity for the last nine years to play for this organization."

Griffin started 10 games as a rookie and played 141 games over nine seasons with Tennessee Travis Benjamin Jersey , including 103 straight between 2007 and 2013. He remains the franchise's all-time leader in tackles by a safety with 912. Griffin also had 25 interceptions, seven sacks, 11 forced fumbles and six fumble recovers with his best season in 2008 with seven interceptions.

Controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk thanked Griffin for his nine seasons with the Titans and wished him the best in retirement.

"He was such a dependable player for us during his time here, missing only three games over nine seasons, and he was always among our leading tacklers," Strunk said in a statement. "His play earned him two Pro Bowl selections and the respect of his teammates. Michael also was invested in our community Rex Burkhead Jersey , finding ways to make a difference."

The Titans released Griffin in February 2016 when he was tied with Corey Graham of Buffalo for the most games played by a safety in the NFL between 2007 and 2015. Griffin signed with Minnesota but didn't play a game. He then signed with Carolina and started six of 13 games with the Panthers in 2016. He finished his career starting 134 of 154 games played in 10 seasons.

Griffin spent the 2017 season working out in case a team called and finished his degree at Texas. He said even when he was with the Vikings and Panthers he always felt he remained a Tennessee Titan.

"I was always cheering my guys on, always texting them if someone went down, ask how they were doing, keep their heads up, if someone was released whatever it may be," Griffin said. "I always stayed in contact with those guys."

Titans linebackers Brian Orakpo and Wesley Woodyard and defensive linemen Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones were on hand for Griffin's announcement.

Papa John’s founder John Schnatter had a role in Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ unsuccessful effort to essentially take over the NFL. Now Adrian Phillips Jersey , the ousted chairman of the board of Papa John’s International, Inc. may hope to take over the company he started.

Via multiple reports, the Papa John’s board of directors voted Sunday to adopt a “poison pill” provision aimed at keeping Schnatter from parlaying his 29-percent share of the company into a controlling interest. (And, yes, there are many potential jokes regarding poison pills and Papa John’s pizzas.)

In a nutshell, the “poison pill” is more officially known as a shareholder-rights plan. It’s a defensive move designed to block a hostile takeover.

Schnatter stepped down as CEO in the aftermath of his misguided attack on the NFL last November. More recently Deion Sanders Jersey , he resigned as chairman of the board after a report surfaced that he used a racial slur during a conference call aimed at restoring his image. He quickly expressed regret for the decision, and he has since been trying to get back in. The company he founded is doing what it can to keep him out.

Along the way, the NFL ended its relationship with the pizza chain, and multiple teams also have parted ways with Papa John’s. If Schnatter should somehow end up in control of the company again, more teams could follow suit.
