Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith tweeted his official NFL retirement notice Friday morning.

Smith signed off with a little humor in a letter addressed to Commissioner Roger Goodell on Jan. 2, saying:

“This is to notify you that as of today I, Steve Smith Sr., will no longer be antagonizing defensive backs. I am retiring from the National Football League.”

Smith joined the Baltimore Ravens in 2014. He played his final game Jan. 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
