BALTIMORE — A trio of former Ravens are hanging up their helmets and cleats, on Friday, running back Willis McGahee officially retired as a Baltimore Raven.

The 10 year veteran played 4 seasons in Baltimore, racking up more than 8,000 rushing yards and 65 touchdowns.

He ranks third in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns in all-time Ravens history.

"I'm very very happy to retire here, I played for four different teams, all in the AFC," McGahee said. "I chose this place to be my home because it was more family like."

Last week, fullback Vonta Leach officially retired after 9 seasons, 3 of which he was a Raven.

Next Saturday, Lardarious Webb will do the same. The former cornerback is the only player in team history to return a punt, kickoff and interception for a touchdown.
