Former NFL kicker Josh Lambo officially announced his retirement on Twitter following seven years in the league, Daniel Chavkin of SI.com reports.

“Today, I officially retire from pro sports,” Lambo wrote. “Four years in MLS and seven in the NFL have led me to things I could only dream of, and now I want to help others accomplish their goals as I become a speaker and author.”

Lambo’s athletic career began in the MLS, as he was a first round draft pick by FC Dallas in the 2008 MLS SuperDraft. He played four seasons in the league, primarily with Dallas, but transitioned to football after retiring from soccer at 21 years old.

Following his soccer career, Lambo enrolled at Texas A&M and kicked for the Aggies for three seasons, serving as starter for two. He went undrafted in the 2015 NFL draft and signed with the Chargers, becoming their primary kicker in his rookie season.

Lambo bounced around in the NFL, playing for the Chargers, Jaguars, Steelers and Titans in his career. His best season came in 2019 with Jacksonville, when Lambo missed just one kick and one extra point all season on his way to a second team All-Pro appearance.
