After 13 incredible seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, offensive lineman Joe Staley recently announced his retirement from the NFL. Staley will always be loved in SF, as No. 74 made countless monster plays for the organization. In case you needed a refresher of what the 6-5, 300-pound hoss could do on the gridiron, this clip shows how athletically gifted he was.
Are you kidding us right now? A man of that size rumbling down the field with that kind of a motor is almost too good to be true. That's classic Staley for you. You think he ever backed away from a defensive lineman or linebacker? No chance.
A speedy defensive back might think he has a shot at the quarterback, but Staley was always quick to put him in his place.
Staley finished his career with 181 appearances and six trips to the Pro Bowl. The man will be missed across the NFL, there's no doubt about that.
