15-year NFL cornerback Johnathan Joseph has decided to call it a career. On his Twitter account, he announced his retirement from the NFL.

Joseph spent his final season in the league with the Arizona Cardinals in 2020, although it did not end well.

Cut by the Tennessee Titans, he signed with Arizona In November. He played in four games and collected three tackles and a pass breakup. He suffered a neck injury and was placed on injured reserve in December.

He was a two-time Pro Bowler — in 2011 and 2012, when Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph was his position coach.

He was drafted in the first round by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2006.

After five seasons with the Bengals, he spent the next nine seasons with the Houston Texans. In 2020, he signed a contract with Tennessee and played seven games before he was cut and signed with Arizona.

He finished his career with 32 interceptions, seven of which he returned for touchdowns. He broke up 82 passes and had 787 tackles.

His time in Arizona was short, but we wish him well in the next stage of his life.
