Veteran offensive lineman Travelle Wharton is retiring today.

Wharton, 33, is scheduled to hold a press conference today at the Carolina Panthers' training camp.

Wharton is a former Panthers third-round draft pick from South Carolina.

Wharton is expected to begin a television career, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Wharton started for Carolina until 2012 when he joined the Cincinnati Bengals, but suffered a knee injury.

Wharton started a dozen games last season for the Panthers.
