This is how you announce your retirement — if only the sun would cooperate.
Carolina Panthers defensive end Jared Allen is calling it a career after 12 NFL seasons, a decision he announced in a very unique way Thursday. The four-time All-Pro tweeted a video of himself literally “riding off into the sunset,” despite not having the whole sunset thing.
Allen also released a more formal statement, too, per NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.
Allen finished his career with 136 sacks, tied with Julius Peppers for the ninth most in NFL history.
