Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher will retire at the end of the season, barring a dramatic change of heart.

The 38-year-old, who has spent 16 years as an NFL LB, revealed there's only a one per cent chance that he will continue past the end of the current campaign.

The Redskins, who sit bottom of the NFC East conference standings, have two games remaining - against Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and the New York Giants seven days later.

And Fletcher believes that victory over Dallas would be the perfect end to his career.

"I want to thank my fans and beat the Dallas Cowboys," he was quoted as saying by the Redskins' official Twitter account. "What better way to end it?"

He also told reporters on Wednesday: “I felt like I've accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish in the National Football League.”

Redskins have lost 11 of their 14 matches this term, but have the chance to add to their three wins in the final two weeks of 2013.
