Back in February, it was revealed that New York Jets 2020 fourth-round pick Cameron Clark would be retiring from the NFL.
This came less than six months after a frightening training camp injury would leave him motionless on the ground of the practice field. The 6-foot-4, 308-pound guard was taken via ambulance to a local hospital. What was first considered a neck issue turned into a spinal cord injury that could “risk paralysis” going forward.
On Tuesday, his tenure with the Jets officially ended after they waived him.
“Jets waived OL Cameron Clark with a failed physical designation,” he tweeted. “Clark, a 4th-rd pick in 2020, missed all of last season with a spinal cord injury. The move Tuesday was expected after Rich Cimini reported in Feb. that Clark was retiring from playing on advice from his docs.”
Clark’s career ends without him ever taking a snap in a regular-season game. His rookie year, called a developmental year by the organization, was interrupted by a shoulder injury.
