PITTSBURGH – For the second time this week, a former Pittsburgh Steelers player announced his retirement from football.
On Sunday, former Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo decided he would hang his shoes for the last time in six seasons. Now former full-back Roosevelt ‘Rosie’ Nix has made the same decision.
Nix, 29, was a Kent State free agent who signed with the Steelers in 2015. Nix played 60 games for Pittsburgh over the next five seasons and won a Pro Bowl selection in 2017.
“For the Steelers and Steeler nation, there is no other fan base or stadium that I would have wanted to play in front of every Sunday,” wrote Nix. “I am forever indebted to you all! Thank you for all the great memories and experiences!”
