Veteran center Corey Linsley is set to retire following his release from the Chargers

“To that end, while he and his wife, Anna, have grown their family from two children to four while with the Chargers, they still make it a priority to serve the community as passionate advocates for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) — work that did not earn Corey a nomination.” Not one, but two Walter Payton Man of the Year Award nominations during his career.

“While he has taken his last snap in the NFL, Corey’s story is far from being written. We can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds for Team Linsley, and we wish Corey, Anna, Seamus, Killian, Quinn and Ruth all the best moving forward.”

Linsley walks away with 144 career games played — all starts — two All-Pro selections and a Pro Bowl nod, which he earned in his first season in Los Angeles.

Linsley, a four-star recruit out of Boardman (Ohio) High School, entered the NFL as a fifth-round pick out of Ohio State and rose to prominence in Green Bay, where he replaced J.C. Tretter for his first few seasons before officially replacing him in Linsley started every game for the Packers from 2017-19 and earned a first-team All-Pro selection in 2020. He earned that honor almost immediately, signing a five-year, $62.5 million contract with the Chargers in 2021.
