New York Giants offensive lineman Zach Fulton informed the team that he intends to retire from football, multiple media outlets reported.

Giants coach Joe Judge said Friday that Fulton’s decision is family and health-related.

Fulton joins linebacker Todd Davis, offensive lineman Joe Looney and wide receiver-turned-tight end Kelvin Benjamin as Giants players who have opted to hang up their cleats. Davis retired on Tuesday and Looney followed suit the next day, while Benjamin announced he was done with football after he was released last week.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old Fulton signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with New York after playing the past three seasons with the Houston Texans.

Fulton appeared in 107 games (90 starts) with the Texans and Chiefs since being selected by Kansas City in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
