Darrelle Revis, a star cornerback with the New York Jets and a Super Bowl winner with their archrivals, the Patriots, has retired.

Revis announced Wednesday on social media that he was ending an 11-season career that included four All-Pro selections.

The proprietor of Revis Island, he was a first-round draft pick (14th overall) by the Jets in 2007 who made an instant impact as a shutdown cover cornerback. Usually charged with handling an opponent's top receiver, Revis often forced offenses to change their game plan to avoid him.

He had 29 career interceptions, returning three for touchdowns, including a 100-yarder against Miami. In 2009, Revis was beaten out by Charles Woodson for Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Revis, who just turned 33, says he is ''closing a chapter on my life that I once dreamed of as a kid.''

Player Notes
Leonard Fournette Aug 21 11:01pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette could see more action on third down this year, according to head coach Doug Marrone. The Jaguars used Fournette on third down plays with the first team offense in Saturday's preseason game against the Vikings and Marrone said the second-year back seems to be doing a good job in the situations. If Fournette can be a true three-down back for Jacksonville this year, he could see his value in PPR formats vault into the top five by the end of the season.

Ryan Fitzpatrick Aug 21 10:20pm ET

Buccaneers left tackle Donovan Smith (knee) will miss the next two-to-four weeks with a sprained knee. Smith looked like he had suffered a much more serious injury in practice but was luckily diagnosed with just a sprain. This is good news for Tampa, but bad news for Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bucs' line will look to be pretty ugly come Week 1 of the regular season if Smith is still out.
