But that didn't stop him from paying tribute to the organization after announcing the step he's taking his career. Without officially stating he's retiring from the NFL, Spears announced he will be joining the SEC Network this fall as an analyst.
After eight years with the Cowboys, Spears signed with the Ravens prior to the 2013 season. His time didn't go as expected and he was released after five games, with Spears recording only five games.
Even so, Spears appears to have enjoyed his time in Baltimore.
