Former 49ers, Packers defensive tackle Quinton Dial announces retirement

Former San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Quinton Dial announced his retirement from the NFL in a post on his instagram account Thursday night.

“I want to thank the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers for the opportunity that you gave a country boy from a small town in Alabama when no one else would. To the fans, thanks for the countless memories that have made the last five years something special,” Dial wrote.

Dial was a fifth-round pick of the 49ers in 2013 and would appear in 46 games with 34 starts during his four years with the team.
