Running back Brandon Jacobs, who spent all but two games of his NFL career with the New York Giants, announced his retirement via Twitter on Thursday.

Jacobs played from 2005-2013, spending the 2012 season with San Francisco before signing with the Giants once more prior to the second game this season. This year he had 58 rushing attempts for 238 yards. For his career, the 31-year-old tallied 5,094 yards rushing with 160 touchdowns.

Jacobs had previously said he did not want to play for any team other than the Giants in the future. On Thursday, he announced that he would not even be doing that.

His tweet continued "I've had an amazing run and I appreciate all of the support from the fans through the good and the bad. The New York Giants are a great organization and I am proud to have been a part of it for so long. I love my coaches and my teammates and will miss them as well as the game itself but I am healing well from my surgery and I look forward to running around with my kids for years to come!"
