Philadelphia Eagles DE Chris Long officially announces retirement on Twitter

After more than a decade in the NFL, it appears that Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long is calling it a career.

Long posted a picture to Twitter on Saturday night — him raising a plastic red cup to mountains in the background — that officially announced his retirement from the league.

“Cheers. Been a hell of a journey,” Long tweeted. “Eleven years and I can honestly say I put my soul into every minute of it. Highs and lows. I’ve seen them both and I appreciate the perspective. Gratitude and love to those who lifted me up.
