We have breaking news out of the National Football League. Longtime NFL wide receiver Danny Amendola is retiring. 

ESPN's Adam Schefter has more on the developing story:

"Despite multiple teams calling this offseason, two-time Super-Bowl champion WR Danny Amendola has decided to retire from the NFL," he said on Twitter. 

A surprising outcome for the veteran, but a well-earned retirement. 

“It was better than I could have ever imagined,” said Amendola.

Congratulations on a great career, Danny. Enjoy retirement.
