A five-time Pro Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro has announced he's retiring from the NFL at the age of 34.

Elvis Dumervil, a star defensive lineman for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens, announced on Twitter today that he's stepping away from the game.

The former Louisville Cardinals' standout last played for the San Francisco 49ers in 2017.

Dumervil led the NFL in sacks in 2009. He has 365 career tackles, 105.5 career sacks and 23 forced fumbles.

Here's his full announcement:

"On to the next chapter. Thank you for all of the support," he writes.

Dumervil has been one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL over the last decade. He played in the league from 2006-17.

Best of luck in retirement, Elvis.
