Bills quarterback Kyle Orton has announced his retirement, Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com reports.
“I just have been going at it for 10 years and it’s just a family decision and I’ve decided to get home and be a dad and call it a day,” said Orton.
Orton, who was contemplating retirement this past offseason signed with the Bills and had a player option to return for the 2015 season, but wanting to be close to family again has his mind made up.
“I think I’ve been away from my parents since going to college, so 14 years,” he said. “Anytime you have a chance to end on a good note and go home and spend time with family that’s really important to me and my wife and we’re just excited to move on.”
He also said there is no NFL scenario that will change his mind to retire at this time.
“No, as I said it’s not a decision based on anything football-wise, just a family decision and one I’m going to stick to,” Orton said.
