Once a Raven, always Raven. Well, at least that's what fans are saying about former Ravens Defensive Tackle Haloti Ngata.

The five-time Pro Bowler announced his retirement from the NFL from a rather unusual location. Ngata posted a video on his Instagram after climbing on top of Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, holding a sign saying, " I'm retiring from the NFL on top."

Ngata was drafted by the Ravens with 12th overall pick in 2006. He stayed in Baltimore for nine seasons before being traded to the Detriot Lions in 2016 and ending his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.
