Jonathan Stinchcomb (born August 27, 1979) is a former American football offensive tackle who played eight seasons in the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Georgia. He was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft by the New Orleans Saints, and was a member of the Saints' Super Bowl championship team.
College career[edit | edit source]
Stinchcomb attended the University of Georgia, where he played for the Georgia Bulldogs football team from 1998 to 2001. Following his senior season in 2001, he was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference (SEC) selection as an offensive lineman.
Professional career[edit | edit source]
New Orleans Saints[edit | edit source]
After spending his first two years with the Saints as a backup, Stinchcomb missed the entire 2005 season with a knee injury, then took over the starting right tackle position for the Saints in 2006. He started 80 consecutive games for the Saints over five seasons, was named the team's Man of the Year in 2008, and went to the Pro Bowl in the Saints' Super Bowl-winning 2009 season. In 2010, however, he played through injury and was deemed to be less effective. He was released on August 15, 2011, after the Saints' first exhibition game of the 2011 season. On September 22, 2011, he told a New Orleans radio interviewer that he had decided to retire, with plans to pursue a career in physical therapy.
Personal life[edit | edit source]
He is the younger brother of Matt Stinchcomb, a former offensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He attended Parkview High School in Lilburn, Georgia, where he was a USA Today and Parade All-American.
