Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo is calling it a career.

He announced his retirement today during a news conference at a downtown Montreal hotel.

The 41-year-old Calvillo played 20 seasons in the CFL, the last 16 with Montreal, and leaves the game as pro football's all-time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes.

Calvillo won three Grey Cups and played in eight championship games over his career.

The five-time CFL all-star was named the league's outstanding player three times.

Calvillo appeared in just seven games last year after sustaining a season-ending concussion in a game against Saskatchewan on August 17th.
