Days after Jaguars center Brad Meester announced his retirement, head coach Gus Bradley called a play for him.

Early in their game against the Titans, Jags quarterback Chad Henne found Meester on his right with a short pass. The 14-year veteran made a couple moves and gained nine yards for a first down.

Meester's family was shown cheering him on after he made his first career catch.

"It's something I seriously thought about for a long time," Meester said on Wednesday, per "It's been a tough decision for me because this is something that I love doing. ... But the more and more I thought about it, the more I know that it's time and I'm looking forward to that next chapter in my life and being able to spend some time with my family."
