Just over a week ago, the New York Jets announced the team was bringing in veteran linebacker B.J. Goodson. He would go on to sign a $2.1 million deal over the course of the season.
On Sunday against the Patriots, he played seven snaps on special teams. That appeared to be enough for him to hang up his cleats.
According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the veteran linebacker is retiring from the league.
A fourth-round pick coming out of Clemson in the 2016 NFL Draft, Goodson started his career with the New York Giants. Goodson spent three seasons with the Giants, totaling 123 tackles.
In his one year with the Packers, Goodson started nine games, playing in 15 total as he recorded 37 tackles. In March of 2020, Goodson signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Browns and played 14 games. He recorded 91 tackles and two interceptions.
Goodson signed a one-year deal with the Jets just eight days ago.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
