Arizona Cardinals running back Rashard Mendenhall intends to retire, according to ESPN.
NFL teams have been informed of Mendenhall's plans.
He averaged just 3.2 yards per carry last season.
A former Pittsburgh Steelers first-round draft pick, Mendenhall has rushed for 4,236 career yards and has scored 39 touchdowns in six NFL seasons.
Mendenhall tore his anterior cruciate ligament in 2011.
