Free agent RB LeSean McCoy has called it quits after 12 NFL seasons. McCoy, who won back-to-back Super Bowls, with the Chiefs and Buccaneers, will officially retire as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, the team announced on Thursday.

McCoy was the franchise’s all-time leading rusher and will be recognized as the Eagles Legend of the Game at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday when his former coach, Andy Reid, and his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, battle the Eagles on Sunday.

The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania native spent his first six NFL seasons in Philadelphia (2009-14), where he currently ranks first in rushing yards (6,792), second in rushing attempts (1,461), third in rushing touchdowns (44), and third in rushing average (4.7). As a member of the Eagles, he led the NFL with 1,607 rushing yards (single-season franchise record) and 2,146 scrimmage yards in 2013, and 17 rushing touchdowns (single-season franchise record) in 2011.

The six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro selection was originally a second-round draft pick (53rd overall) of the Eagles in the 2009 NFL Draft; McCoy ended his career totaling 15,000 scrimmage yards (11,102 rushing; 3,898 receiving) and 89 total touchdowns (73 rushing; 16 receiving) in 170 regular-season games.
