CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Carolina Panthers say that offensive tackle Jordan Gross will announce his retirement at a news conference on Wednesday.

Gross, 33, was a first-round pick by Carolina in 2003 and started 167 games -- all for the Panthers. He went to his third Pro Bowl this past season as an alternate.

Gross' contract had expired with the Panthers this offseason, but there was still some question as to his return. He went on vacation with his family last week in Utah to contemplate whether or not to retire.

The decision creates a void for the Panthers at left tackle.
