Linebacker Dhani Jones, an eleven-year NFL veteran who started every game for the Bengals from 2008 through 2010, has retired from pro football. Jones announced the decision in a message posted at his website, DhaniJones.TV.

Jones entered the league with the Giants in 2000. After four seasons in New York, he signed with the Eagles. After three seasons in Philly, he finished his career with four seasons in Cincinnati.

Jones started in Super Bowl XXXIX for the Eagles.

His retirement announcement matches the complexity and layers of the man who branched out beyond football long before retiring from the game. It’s delivered into a hand-held camera, confidently and proudly, from an airport.

We’ve got a feeling that we won’t be hearing the last of Dhani Jones. And we like that.

Congratulations, Dhani, on a great career.
