Wide receiver Greg Jennings has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.

The 32-year-old Jennings said Monday he can still physically play but has elected to move on from football.

"I've got some news to share with you guys. Football is over. I'm done. No more big hits. No more 'Touchdown Greg Jennings!'" Jennings said in his YouTube video announcement. "At least within the lines of a football field, I'm done. I'm excited to be done. The past 20 years of my life has been football, but today that all changes and this smile is not going to be removed. It's going to be enhanced. The same dedication, the same work ethic that I put into pursuing that sport, this game, I'll be pursuing everything else with the same mindset."

Jennings had just 19 receptions in 16 games last season for 208 yards and one touchdown in his only season with the Miami Dolphins.

"Physically I know I can still do it, I can still play, I've been training hard," Jennings said. "But I feel as though I would be going back to football, versus moving forward."

Jennings spent the first seven seasons (2006 to 2012) of his career with Green Bay, where he caught 53 touchdowns and recorded 6,537 yards receiving yards. He was also a member of the Packers team that won Super Bowl XLV.

Jennings left the Packers after the 2012 season and signed a five-year, $45 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings but played just two seasons.

The two-time Pro Bowler finishes his career with 571 catches for 8,291 yards and 64 touchdowns.
