Former Nebraska football offensive lineman Dylan Utter took to Twitter Monday to announce his retirement from the game of football. Utter posted an emotional tweet Monday afternoon, thanking many of his teammates and family members for helping him along the way.

Utter was a captain for the Huskers in 2016 and was a leader to the young Nebraska offensive line. He was originally a walk-on before earning a scholarship prior to the 2015 season. 

The former Husker went undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft, but was granted a tryout with the Vikings as a free agent following the draft.
