 CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears player who was on the team for more games than anyone in team history is retiring.
Long snapper Patrick Mannelly announced Friday that he is retiring after a 16-year-career with the Bears, a span in which he played in a team record 245 games and snapped the ball 2,282 times. He helped the Bears set two NFL records: 920 consecutive snaps without a blocked punt and 180 games without a blocked punt.
In his career, Mannelly played on four division championship teams and one NFC championship team. He played in every game during 12 of his 16 seasons with the Bears and missed only 11 games in his NFL career.
