"We want to congratulate Kamerion on a his NFL career," Titans General Manager Ruston Webster said. "He is a true pro and a fantastic person. Not everyone gets to walk away from the game on their own terms and he is doing that today and for that he has my respect. I know he has a number of business ventures already and we wish him and his family the best in what lies ahead."

In 140 career games (123 starts), Wimbley posted 533 tackles (358 solo), 53.5 QB sacks, 32 tackles for loss, two interceptions, 13 passes defensed, nine forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and six special teams tackles.
