Per Mike Reiss on ESPN, Light has sent in the paperwork and has been placed on the reserve/retired list.
Following one of his best seasons, I had hoped he would stay for at least another season.
A huge THANK YOU and best of wishes to one of the very best.

Soldier is ready in my opinion, and Light as great as he was this past season I think has just lost his interest in going through everything it takes to play at that level. I think Light was one of the best LT this team has ever had and deserves a day in his honor at Gillette. Good luck to him.
