Ngata retreats from the NFL to Kilimanjaro

Haloti Ngata, one of the most dominant defenders of his time, has reached new heights to announce his retirement.

In an Instagram post, Ngata stood on Kilimanjaro – the tallest freestanding mountain in the world – with a banner saying, "I'm retiring from the NFL."

Ngata, 35, went to the Pro Bowl five times and won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in February 2013. Awarded number 12 by the Ravens in 2006, Ngata's strength, strength and sportiness have made it a strong point.

For the past 13 seasons, Ngata has been the only defensive tackle to record over 500 tackles, 30 sacks and four interceptions. In the middle, Baltimore was in chaos with the 6-foot-4 and 340-pound Ngata chaos. In seven of his nine seasons, Baltimore was in the top five in run defensive.

Ngata will be remembered as one of the best defenders in the history of Ravens and will likely go into the ring of honor of the team. He played for Baltimore from 2006 to 2014, before moving to the Detroit Lions (2015 to 2017), ending his career at the Philadelphia Eagles (2018).

He had 17 tackles (four for loss), one sack and three quarterback hits in 13 games in 2018.

He missed three games in October with a calf injury, but otherwise he was regularly present alongside the outstanding Fletcher Cox, launched nine games and played 35 percent of the snapshots. 2018 played Ngata at the end of the season, some of his best footballers.

In 2006, mid-linebacker Ray Lewis mingled with his frustration that he had no space-consuming defensive duels that left him free to run around. Nine days later, Baltimore traded with the Browns to move up one spot to draw Ngata.

After rolling back 60 meters in an NFL debut and breaking Ben Roethlisberger's nose in 2010, Ngata announced that he was different from most defensive linemen.

Former Colts Center Jeff Saturday once called Ngata "an absolute monster".

In 2010, Ravens linebacker Jarret Johnson said: "You could not build a more perfect football player, you have smart minds, work ethic, strength … you could go on and on, there are many big, powerful, strong men in this league, many of them They're idiots, some of them are lazy, you can not find 350-pound guys who are energetic. "
