Former Utah DT Lowell Lotulelei to Retire from Football

NCAA Football: UCLA at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Former Utah Utes defensive tackle Lowell Lotulelei has decided to retire from football. He was not selected in the 2018 NFL Draft but did sign an UDFA contract with the Denver Broncos.

He received a $15,000 signing bonus (tied for the most of any undrafted free agent who signed with the Broncos) but has already paid that money back to the team.

Lowell’s career at Utah was slowed by several injuries, so my guess is he wants to preserve his health and get into coaching. We here at Block U wish him luck.
