Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith says he will play in 2016 despite his previous plan to retire, he announced on Twitter Wednesday.

Smith, 36, sustained a season-ending torn Achilles against the San Diego Chargers on Nov. 1. In August, he announced he would retire at the conclusion of the 2015 season.

The NFL veteran spent the first 13 years of his career with the Carolina Panthers, before signing a three-year contract with the Ravens in March 2014. The five-time Pro Bowl selection will enter the final year of his contract with the Ravens in 2016.

In 15 NFL seasons, Smith has accumulated 13,932 receiving yards and 76 touchdowns.
