Cincinnati Bengals guard and Fort Thomas resident, Clint Boling, has announced his retirement from the NFL after eight seasons in Cincinnati.
Boling joined the team in 2011 as a fourth-round draft selection (101 overall) out of the University of Georgia.

“After eight years in the NFL, it is time for me to step away from the game due to medical reasons,” said Boling.
The exact medical reason remains unclear. He has been sidelined all summer with an undisclosed injury.
“This is not an easy decision, but it is the right one for me, my wife Kelly and our two young girls. I want to thank the Brown family for giving me the opportunity to play my entire career with the Bengals. I also want to thank my teammates, coaches, fans and everyone who has supported me throughout my career," Boling added.
Boling helped the Bengals to five straight playoff appearances from 2011-15, including AFC North division titles in ’13 and ’15. Over his Bengals tenure, he blocked for four 1,000-yard rushers and helped produce 100-yard rushing performances by running backs 21 times.
