OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck is retiring after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Tuck announced his decision Monday and says he leaves the NFL with very few regrets.

Tuck was an All Pro in 2008 when he had 12 sacks. He finishes his career with 66 1/2 sacks, 22 forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries and three interceptions in 147 career games. Tuck missed the final 11 games this season with a torn pectoral muscle.
