A week after being released due to injuries, Filipino-American Super Bowl champion Doug Baldwin is calling it a career.

Baldwin announced his retirement through a series of tweets Tuesday, written as a letter to his young self.

Baldwin mentioned family, friends and teammates in the messages.

The Stanford graduate from Florida with Tacloban roots played his entire 8-season career with the Seattle Seahawks.

The wide receiver won a Super Bowl in 2014, was named to the Pro Bowl twice, and is among the franchise leaders in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns.

On May 10, the Seahawks announced its decision to cut one of their most best players after a failed physical.

Baldwin, who is among the all-time team leaders in the receiving category, underwent several surgeries last season.
