Four months after starting for the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, free-agent guard Mike Person has decided to call it a career after nine NFL seasons, Jelani Scott of reports.

Person, who was released by the Niners in April, announced his retirement during a phone interview with 406 MT Sports this weekend. The 32-year-old offensive lineman cited years of wear and tear and a desire to spend more time with his family as contributing factors to his decision.

"I just feel like now is the right time," Person said. "Obviously I wish it would have ended differently, especially this past season. You take a beating, and anybody who's played knows that. At some point, you just have to tell yourself now is the right time.

"My kids are getting older and most likely I'd spend the entire season away from them if I were to sign with someone. I've missed too much already."
