SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Panthers offensive lineman Travelle Wharton officially announced his retirement at a press conference at Wofford College, about 30 minutes from he grew up and started playing the game.

Wharton, 33, played in 115 games and started 111 for Carolina. He also spent time with Cincinnati, though he never started a game for the Bengals due to injuries.

With former high school, college and NFL coaches in attendance, Wharton said goodbye to football after what he described as a difficult decision.

Wharton says, ''I didn't think it was going to take this long. ... I felt it was the right time and didn't want to overdo it.''

Wharton becomes the fourth Carolina offensive lineman to retire since the end of the 2013 season joining Jordan Gross, Geoff Hangartner and Jeff Byers.
