Colts OG Jack Mewhort Calls it a Career After Four Seasons

Colts offensive guard Jack Mewhort has announced his retirement from the NFL after four seasons according to the team’s official website.

Originally a second-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2014, Mewhort was one of the Colts’ best offensive linemen in 2015 and 2016 before injuries started taking their toll.

He has appeared in only 15 games the past two seasons as he struggled to come back from knee and triceps injuries. The Colts opted to bring Mewhort back on a one-year, $1.5 million contract this March but he was considered a longshot to win a starting job.

The Colts are expected to roll with an offensive line of LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly, RG Matt Slauson, and RT Austin Howard this season. Mewhort does not turn 27 years old until August 30.
