MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – NFL player Jon Runyan says he’ll retire at the end of the season and launch a campaign for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd District.

Runyan said in a written statement that he had told Republican officials in Burlington County that he would retire after the season and seek to challenge Democratic Rep. John Adler in 2010.

Runyan has played 13 seasons in the NFL for Houston, Tennessee and Philadelphia.

He lives in Mount Laurel.
