Jared Allen, legendary Chiefs/Vikings/Bears/Panthers pass rusher announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday while riding a horse in a killer jacket and cowboy hat.

Allen, who last season played for the Carolina Panthers, used Twitter to post a video announcing his retirement.

“Hello everyone, I just want to say thank you for an amazing 12-year career,” Allen said. “This was the part where I was going to ride off into the sunset. But seeing as how there’s no sunset I’m just going to ride off.”

Jared Allen, 33, spent most of his career with the Minnesota Vikings where he was a Pro Bowl selection five times. He left the Vikings in 2013 and signed with the Bears as a free agent but was then traded to the Panthers in September. Allen was a fourth round pick by the Chiefs in the 2004 NFL draft. He retires as the active sack leader in the NFL (tied with Julius Peppers of the Packers) with 136.
