A young player has decided to step away from the National Football league.
According to Kelsey Conway, Bengals DE Wyatt Hubert has decided to retire, with the team placing him on the reserve/retired list.
The 24-year-old was drafted in the seventh round of the 2021 draft out of Kansas State by the Bengals. He was a first-team All-Big 12 selection each of his final two years at Kansas State.
Hubert signed a four-year, $3.6 million rookie contract but he suffered a season-ending torn pectoral muscle prior to training camp last season, so he never played a game in the NFL.
In 2020, Hubert recorded 19 tackles, 13.5 tackles-for-loss, 8.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 10 games for Kansas State.
