DETROIT -- Robert Porcher retired Monday, ending a 13-year career with the Detroit Lions, for whom he is the career leader in sacks.

"I've thought about this day for a lot of the last three years," Porcher said. "We all think we can play forever, and I was no different, but now the time has come to step aside."

Porcher, who retired with 95½ career sacks, already had announced this would be his last season, but he ended his career early after being inactive for Detroit's first seven games.

"These last seven weeks have been tough," he said. "I had always been proud of being part of the solution, not part of the problem."
