Baltimore Ravens special teams captain Anthony Levine Sr. retired from the NFL on Wednesday.

Levine, 34, entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee State and spent time on the Green Bay Packers' practice squad. The safety found his footing with Baltimore, recording 149 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions and four fumble recoveries in 146 career games (five starts) from 2012-21.

"Tough, smart, persistent and dependable, Anthony represents the very best of what it means to be a Raven. A relentless competitor and man of high character, Anthony poured every part of himself into the team," coach John Harbaugh said.

"He worked tirelessly to become one of the NFL's best special teams players, and he could always be relied upon to contribute at a high level on defense -- no matter the role he was asked to play. Most importantly, Anthony is a terrific leader of men and someone who helped his teammates become the very best versions of themselves."

Levine appeared to hint at the move earlier on Wednesday over social media.

"Good morning today is the day!" he wrote on Twitter.
