Hutchinson announced his decision Tuesday morning on Twitter and the Titans confirmed it.
Hutchinson wrote he was retiring after a "great run" in the NFL. He thanked the Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings and Titans along with fans of those teams.
A seven-time Pro Bowler and five-time All Pro, Hutchinson started all 169 games he played spending his first five seasons in Seattle, six in Minnesota and his final season in Tennessee. He helped the Seahawks reach the 2006 Super Bowl.
The 35-year-old Hutchinson was placed on injured reserve Dec. 5 after hurting his right knee in a 24-10 loss to Houston. He signed a three-year deal with Tennessee in March 2012.
