Panthers DE Jared Allen announces his retirement via video

Another day, another key retirement in the NFL.

Today star defensive end Jared Allen announced his retirement.

The NFL's active sacks leader (136) posted a video of himself wearing a black cowboy hat, heavy coat and riding a horse off "into the sunset'' even though there was none.

"I just want to say thank you for an amazing 12-year career,'' Allen said in the video. "This is the part where I was going to ride off into the sunset, but seeing how there is no sunset, I'm just going to ride off.''

Allen was at his best during the 2011 season at Minnesota, with a league-leading 22 sacks. He had 11 sacks or more in eight of his 12 seasons.



Is Jared Allen a hall of fame caliber player? Do you think he will get inducted in when the time is right?
