Hall of Fame broadcaster Tom Jackson is calling it quits after a 29-year career.

ESPN announced Wednesday that the 65-year-old NFL analyst is retiring from broadcasting. Jackson’s final assignment will be this weekend at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Jackson joined ESPN in 1987 as one of its first NFL analysts after playing 14 years for the Denver Broncos.

Jackson, the 2015 Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award recipient, said in a statement his priority will be spending time with his family.
