EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Sean Landeta, one of the most prolific punters in NFL history, announced his retirement Thursday, ending a professional career that spanned 25 years.
"To be part of two Super Bowl winning teams with a franchise that has their history is very special to me," he added. "I will always appreciate everything the Giant franchise and their fans have done for me in the past, and as I stated earlier, I still do to this day."
Landeta played with six NFL teams during his career.
Landeta made his announcement Thursday because it marked the 25th anniversary of the first game played in the United States Football League (USFL), between Landeta's Philadelphia Stars and the Denver Gold.
He becomes the last USFL player to retire from football.
