The standout defensive end made the announcement Monday on YouTube, saying he is leaving to make a dream come true.

Braves sign McCann, Donaldson
Looking to improve on their first division title in five years, the Atlanta Braves agreed Monday to one-year contracts with Brian McCann and former AL MVP Josh Donaldson.
Donaldson, who turns 32 next month, agreed to a $23 million deal, the Braves confirmed Monday night. The salary matches what the third baseman made during a forgettable 2018 season with the Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians.
McCann’s $2 million contract reunites the team with a catcher who was a seven-time All-Star from 2005-13.
McCann, a native of suburban Atlanta who turns 35 in February, left the Braves to sign an $85 million, five-year contract with the New York Yankees. After the emergence of Gary Sanchez, McCann was traded to Houston and helped the Astros win their first World Series title in 2017.
