    I grew up about 100 yards from the Polumbus family, and I was pretty good friends with his older sister. It's been cool watching that (big) little kid grow up and go onto success at CU and the NFL.

    Noooo! He showed last year that he still has some very good football left in him. Great career, Tyler. Future coach IMO.

    I remember when Tyler was not drafted and no one gave him much of a chance. It has been fun to watch him beat the odds. Tyler is a great Buffalo. I hope we get to see him around the Colorado football program at some point in the future.

    I'm not sure about the rules but I imagine he has enough active time to garner a player retirement pension.

    Good for him. Walk away while you're still young and healthy.

    Unless they changed it a player has to have four years on an active roster (meaning at least 3 games on the 53 man roster in a season or on IR coming off the active roster) with a significant increase in payout for each additional year. He will be able to start recieving his checks at age 55.

    Playing in the 303 for high school, college, and pro ball and winning a championship at the highest level looks pretty good to me. Tyler can enjoy watching his kids grow up and chase them around while hopefully still being able to keep up and have his health. I didn't realize Tyler had been in Atlanta's training camp prior to returning to Denver. The connection there is the Falcons OL coach Chris Morgan, himself a former Buff and a Tom Cable disciple, who coached Polumbus as an assistant at Washington years before.

    I don't know if this is a desired career path for him, but if Tyler wanted to stay local and do anything engaging with prep athletes, I think his presence and his accolades would certainly get attention and be a positive reflection of what a Colorado kid can do going to CU.
