Pittsburgh Steelers nose guard Chris Hoke has decided to retire after playing 11 seasons for the AFC North organization. Hoke finished the season on injured reserve with a neck injury. Hoke will discuss his decision with reporters Thursday morning.

Originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Brigham Young University in 2001, Hoke spent the last 11 seasons as one of the most reliable backups on the Steelers’ defense. In 2004, Hoke had his most successful season, recording 27 tackles and one sack.

In Hoke’s 18 career starts during the regular season, the Steelers had a record of 17-1.
