Baltimore Ravens linebacker Zack Orr has decided to retire. He steps away at 24-years-old.

Orr just completed his third season. During the first 31 games of his career, he had just 21 tackles and a pass deflection.

This past season, in 15 games, all starts, he had 89 tackles, three interceptions, five pass deflections, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

He had a career-high 10 tackles against the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 4. The Ravens won that game 38-6.

Last season, 19 National Football League players retired 30-years-old or younger.

Orr is the latest young football player to retire. Last off-season, former Detroit Lions star wide receiver Calvin “Megatron” Johnson stepped away and the most popular name to retire — but he’s one of many in the last few years to retire at 30-years-old or younger. Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Boswell stepped away after just one season within the past few seasons.

Two players are already considering retirement. Dallas Cowboys 30-year-old cornerback Brandon Carr said that he’s considering retirement.

Carr, who is a free agent in March, will have several weeks to make a decision.

Denver Broncos 31-year-old running back Justin Forsett also said he’s considering retirement. He played for three teams during the 2016 season.
