Defensive End Elvis Dumervil officially retired Thursday morning with a heartfelt letter to his fans.

Dumervil joined the Ravens in 2013, signing a five-year, $35 million contract. He surely lived up to his contract, setting the Ravens single-season record with 17 sacks in 2014. Along with his 17 sacks, Dumervil forced two fumbles and was selected as a First Team All-Pro.

In his career with Baltimore, Dumervil made two Pro Bowls and totaled 35.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles in four seasons.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Dumervil played seven years with the Denver broncos, who drafted him in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. He led the league in sacks (17) during the 2009 season.

He signed with the 49ers in 2017 after being released by Baltimore. In his one season in San Francisco, he tallied 6.5 sacks.

Dumervil’s ability to rush the quarterback and his patented “strip-sack” made for many memories in his career. He certainly made his mark in the NFL and for his time in Baltimore, it was great seeing #58 get after the quarterback.

Thank you, Elvis!
