New York Jets kicker Chandler Catanzaro abruptly announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday after struggling during the preseason opener against the New York Giants.
Catanzaro, 28, signed a one-year $2.3 million contract with the Jets in the offseason. Missing two extra-point attempts Thursday night, however, seemed to be the final nail in the coffin for the kicker.

According to ESPN, he must return his $500,000 signing bonus to the Jets in accordance with league rules.
