It’s the end of an era.

Seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, having just turned 33-years-old five days ago, has officially retired after 11 seasons in the National Football League.

The Pitt product, drafted by the New York Jets with the 14th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, spent his time with New York (eight seasons), Tampa Bay (one season), New England (one season) and Kansas City (one season).

In his prime, Revis was the league’s top shutdown corner and a Hall of Fame-caliber player. The four-time First Team All-Pro even won a Super Bowl title during his one season in New England in 2014. He finished his 11-year career with 497 combine tackles, 29 interceptions (25 of which were during his NY days) and 140 passes defensed.

Revis was a Pro Bowler for five of his eight seasons with the Jets, and played his best football while donning the green and white.

Thanks for NFL Films, we have the opportunity to get a look at the top 10 plays of his career:

I think I prefer this career highlight video, though:

He may not get in on the first try, but he’ll likely be immortalized in Canton one day.

ALTHOUGH, this is not a good look for him in his final game as a professional football player as he and his Chiefs fell to the Titans in January’s AFC Wild Card round:
