    Washington Redskins offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger announced his retirement Friday.

    "My chapter is ending, but there are great things happening in the organization," he said.

    One of the team's longest tenured players, Lichtensteiger, 31, spent his last seven seasons with the Redskins after being drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2008 and playing his rookie season in Denver and three weeks for the Minnesota Vikings in September 2009, according to the Redskins.

    The Redskins signed him in January 2010.

    In 2014, Lichtensteiger played center for the first time since college at Bowling Green. He started 24 games there over three seasons.
