New York Giants' David Diehl confirms retirement

New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl confirms that he has retired from the game at the age of 33 after 11 seasons in the NFL.

New York Giants offensive lineman David Diehl has announced his retirement from the game after 11 years in the NFL.

The 33-year-old decided to call time on his career after sustaining injuries in his past two years with the club, which limited his time on the field.

"I've accomplished everything I could possibly dream of as a football player," Diehl said in a statement.

"If in 2003, anyone would have said that Dave Diehl, a fifth-round Draft pick out of Illinois, would win two Super Bowls, play in the Pro Bowl and win every single Giant award possible, people would have said you're crazy. I have a lot to be proud of."

Diehl won Super Bowl 42 and 46 with the Giants and was also voted as an All-Pro in 2008.
