Rishard Matthews announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday morning in a very strange way, days after the receiver was cut by the New Orleans Saints.
Matthews put a letter on Instagram titled “No Longer Exist” that lists all of the aspects of football he’ll get away from by leaving the game.
“Rishard Matthews the football player No Longer Exist [sic] & it’s okay,” reads the start of the NSFW caption.
Matthews noted that there’s always someone going through something worse than himself and “for athletes it’s important to understand & Move the f— on.”
The Saints, who picked him up in June, released Matthews on Saturday after he chose to leave camp, according to ESPN.com’s Mike Triplett.
It was one day after he played in the team’s first preseason game.
