Brandon Stokley, the last active player of the Superbowl XXXV team announced that he will retire following a season-ending concussion that placed him on injured reserve Dec. 10.

Stokley, 37, mentioned to The Denver Post on Thursday at an interview in his Colorado home that his 15th NFL season will be his final one.

Stokley continued, "I'm glad I played this year because I know I'm done," Stokely told them "Had I not played this year I would have always felt I could have kept playing. I still know I can play but my body just can't go through it anymore."

Stokley will always be remembered for scoring the first touchdown during the Ravens Super Bowl XXXV victory, catching the initial scoring catch behind New York Giants corner back Jason Sehorn.

Overall, Brandon Stokley finishes his NFL career with 397 receptions for 5,339 yards and 39 touchdowns, including a career-high 68 catches for 1,077 yards and 10 touchdowns during the 2004 season with Peyton Manning in Indianapolis.
