Danny Amendola has played his last snap of football.

Just moments ago, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Amendola - the longtime slot receiver - is retiring. 

"Despite multiple teams calling this offseason, two-time Super-Bowl champion WR Danny Amendola has decided to retire from the NFL. 'It was better than I could have ever imagined,' Amendola said about his career," Schefty tweeted.

The 36-year-old leaves the game behind having won two Super Bowls - both with the Patriots - and amassed 617 catches for 6,212 yards and 24 touchdowns. 

A Patriots legend has laced his cleats for the last time. 

Enjoy retirement, Danny.
