Kansas football legend and NFL Pro Bowler Aqib Talib has called it quits, ending his pro career with a number of prestigious accolades.

During Aqib Talib’s All-American career with the Kansas Jayhawks, it was easy to see that he would go on to do big things in the NFL. After five Pro Bowl appearances, two all-pro selections, and a Super Bowl win, Talib has decided to retire from professional football. Most Kansas football fans will remember his incredible season in 2007 though, the year the Jayhawks won the Orange Bowl.
