Ngata retires from NFL atop Mount Kilimanjaro

Quote:
Haloti Ngata, one of the most dominant defensive linemen of his era, scaled new heights to announce his retirement.

In an Instagram post, Ngata stood on top of Mount Kilimanjaro -- the world's tallest free-standing mountain -- with a banner that read, "I'm retiring from the NFL on top."

Ngata, 35, went to the Pro Bowl five times and won a Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens in February 2013. Selected No. 12 overall by the Ravens in 2006, Ngata established himself as a force inside with his size, power and athleticism.

Over the past 13 seasons, Ngata was the only defensive tackle to record over 500 tackles, 30 sacks and four interceptions. With the 6-foot-4, 340-pound Ngata causing havoc in the middle, Baltimore ranked in the top five in run defense in seven of his nine seasons.

Not to many like him. HOF caliber, but will he be?
