Chris Gray, Seattle

Tulsa World: NFL Notebook: Broncos<GE2> receiver<GE2> says<GE2> he's<GE2> grown<GE2> up: "Titans lineman retires: Benji Olson decided to leave college a year early in 1998 because the offensive lineman wasn't sure how long his back would hold up in the NFL.

He announced his retirement Thursday having lasted 10 years with only three interior linemen playing more games than Olson in that stretch.

Not bad for a guy hoping to last maybe five seasons.

'Honestly, I was just shooting to make the team when I got here. I was just happy these guys took a chance on me, a guy who recently had back surgery,' Olson said at a news conference.

Only Casey Wiegmann, Alan Faneca and Chris Gray played more games between 1998 and 2007 than Olson on the inside of the offensive line.

Olson started 140 of the 152 games he played, not including nine playoff games. Nobody has started more games with Tennessee since 1999 than Olson."
