The world of NFL is incredibly. While new talent is incredibly rare to find a place amongst the ranks of the greats, those who enter only have a limited timespan to achieve their goals.

Former linebacker for teams like the Broncos and Steelers, Anthony Chickillo, announced his decision to retire and hang it up. The NFL veteran took to Instagram to thank everyone for the opportunities and love they’ve given him during his career.

My whole life my dream was to go to the University of Miami and play in the NFL. I am so grateful for the opportunity and thankful for every one of the teams that gave me a shot. The game of football is apart of my family and will always be forever. Thank you for the support everyone!

Chickillo was a product of the University of Miami, of which he was a star-player. He got recruited out of college to the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he became a regular.


The player had an incredibly busy trajectory with the Steelers, where in the 5 seasons he spent with the team, he participated in 65 games, where he got a record of 97 tackles, 11 out of which were for loss, 15 QB hits, 7.5 sacks and only three were counted as forced-fumbles.
