JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Mr. Jaguar is ready to retire after 14 seasons.

Center Brad Meester announced Wednesday that he will retire when the season ends in two weeks.

Meester will play his final home game on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

The popular lineman was drafted by Tom Coughlin in the second round of the NFL draft in the year 2000. Meester has played in over 200 games and for every coach the Jaguars have ever had (five of them).

Meester and his wife have six girls and the family has plans to return to Iowa where they just finished building a new home.

Meester owns the franchise record for games played (207) and started (207).  He owns a current streak of 88 consecutive starts, most on the roster and the second-longest streak in team history behind his record of 92 consecutive starts from 2000 to December 2005.

I have enjoyed watching Brad Meester play, he has been one of the most dependable players on the team. At least Gene Smith got that draft choice correct, something he almost never accomplished in his years as the Jaguars GM. Just hope the Jaguars can find someone as big and powerful who has the ability to stay as healthy as Brad has over the years. Best wishes to him and his family for a bright future.
