Report: Chris Samuels will retire

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...s-will-retire/

Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels won't return to help Washington's struggling offensive line this year or next.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that Samuels will retire because of the neck injury he suffered two weeks ago.

Samuels was expected to visit a specialist this week, and clearly the news wasn't good. Washington's line was already struggling with Samuels, and both tackle spots will be weaned with Stephon Heyer permanently moving to the left side.

New addition Levi Jones could eventually work his way into the starting lineup.

Samuels was drafted third by the Redskins in 2000, and only missed eight starts before this season, with four of the missed games coming in 2008. He made the Pro Bowl six times.
