Denver Broncos offensive lineman John Moffitt has called it quits from the National Football League at the age of 27.

Denver Broncos guard John Moffitt has reitred from the NFL at the age of 27. 

According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, Moffitt "told the team he was retiring from football, but a source close to him said the third-year NFL lineman from the University of Wisconsin is doing some soul searching amid frustration at his lack of playing time." 

Moffitt also broke the news on his Twitter account. He wrote,"Football was fun but my head hurts -- haha kidding roger goodell. I'm on to new things, thanks to everyone along the way!!!"   

He also told Dave "Softy" Mahler of KJR-AM Seattle that "he's ready to live a different kind of life." 

Klis also reported Moffitt as telling 102.3 ESPN on Nov. 5 he had his health in mind when he made his decision to hang up his cleats. He said,"Scientists do know that hits to the head do deteriorate your brain."

Since starting 15 games for the Seattle Seahawks from 2011-12, Moffitt has played in just two of the Broncos' eight games since he was acquired via a trade for defensive tackle Sealver Siliga

Consequently, the Broncos placed Moffitt on the reserve/left squad list on Tuesday, a day after he failed to report for practice on Monday. Denver has a five-day exemption which would allow the team to either release or re-activate him. 

Moffitt's premature retirement coincides with the return of center J.D. Walton to the Broncos on Nov. 5. Walton suffered a severaly fractured ankle on Sept. 30, 2012 against Denver's AFC West rivals, the Oakland Raiders.  

Walton, who underwent surgery in June per the Broncos' official website, will take over for Moffitt once his retirement becomes official.
