BOSTON (CBS) — There’s been no official announcement and no tearful press conference, but it appears as though longtime Patriots left tackle has taken his final snap in New England.

NFL.com’s list of transactions for April 24 lists the following note: “Matt Light (T) retired.”

Those three words could bring an end to an 11-year career that included three Super Bowl victories and four Pro Bowl selections.

WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche tweeted that Light is currently out of town.

“Expect a formal retirement announcement when he returns,” Roche said.

He played in 155 out of a possible 176 regular-season games, and he started 16 postseason games, protecting Tom Brady’s blind side each time.

Prior to last season, Light signed a two-year deal to remain with the Patriots. However, after the Super Bowl loss in February, speculation began spreading that the 33-year-old would retire.
