Talk about going out on top!

After playing 14 seasons in the NFL and capturing a Super Bowl ring, punter Donnie Jones announced today that he will retire from the NFL.

A seventh-round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2004, Jones went on to play in 214 regular-season games, including the final 80 with the Eagles, and earned AP All-Pro honors in 2008 and 2009 while punting for the St. Louis Rams. Over the course of his career, Jones registered a 45.5-yard average on 1,110 career punts.

Jones is the Birds’ all-time leader in both gross punting average (45.37) and net average (40.5). He also owns the team records for most career punts inside the 20 (138), most single-season punts inside the 20 (34, 2014) and best net punting average in a season (41.6, 2015).
