Former Alabama wide receiver and Super Bowl champion Gehrig Dieter announced his retirement from the NFL via Twitter on Wednesday. 

Dieter spent the entirety of his professional football career as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, who signed him after being undrafted in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was awarded a championship ring for the team’s victory in Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers in 2020.

Dieter appeared in ten games total for Kansas City, catching two passes for 32 yards total. He did not appear in a game for the Chiefs last season, but spent much of the season on the team's practice squad.

The Bama product was released from the Chiefs roster in May to make room for the team’s incoming draft class. Although spending most of his career on their practice squad, he was a fan favorite among many fans in Kansas City and is good friends with Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Dieter spent his senior season at the Capstone after transferring from SMU and Bowling Green State, tallying 15 receptions for 214 yards and 4 touchdowns. After Dieter’s retirement, there are now ten Alabama wide receivers left on NFL rosters.
