Baltimore Ravens receiver Steve Smith retired exactly how the longtime trash-talking NFL star should.

Smith penned a personal letter to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell officially announcing his retirement from the game of football, and it’s about exactly what you would expect.

“Dear Commissioner Goodell,” the note begins.

“This is to notify you that as of today I, Steve Smith Sr., will no longer be antagonizing defensive backs. I am retiring from the National Football League.”

“Sincerely, Steve Smith Sr.,” he signed off.

And that was it.

Smith spent 13 years with the Carolina Panthers before capping his career off with 3 more seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. During his 16 seasons, he recorded 1031 receptions for 14,731 yards and 81 touchdowns, and talked a whole lot of trash along the way.

The league surely won’t be the same without him.
