DeMarcus Ware has announced his retirement from the NFL.

A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, he'll turn 35 in late July and is eighth all-time in sacks with 138.5.

Ware needed one sack to tie newly minted Hall of Famer Jason Taylor and with four sacks he would have passed Michael Strahan and move into sixth place all-time.

Ware won a Super Bowl with the Broncos.
