Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson

Scott Young's time in Denver was short.

The offensive lineman retired from the NFL on Thursday. The team is expected to announce his decision Thursday. He signed with Denver as a free agent March 13 and was vying to be a backup in Denver.

Young, 27, retired the day before Denver starts a three-day voluntary minicamp. Young played in Philadelphia from 2005 to 2007 and played in Cleveland last season.
