Former Seattle Seahawks LB Shaquem Griffin retires from NFL
Linebacker Shaquem Griffin announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday, writing for The Players' Tribune that he's looking forward to helping others as part of the NFL
Griffin, who had his left hand cut off at age 4 in view of amniotic band disorder, an inherent condition, turned into the primary player with one hand to be drafted in the NFL's cutting edge time
when the Seattle Seahawks picked him in the fifth round in 2018. It rejoined him with his twin sibling, Shaquill, then the Seahawks' beginning left cornerback.
The NFL complimented Griffin on his retirement, tweeting that he is "a genuine motivation."
Shaquem Griffin was deferred by the Seahawks in 2020 and said Wednesday that his sibling remained with him and skipped practice the following day.
"I didn't need individuals thinking, Aw, the one-gave player got cut. I don't do compassion, man. I could do without individuals feeling frustrated about me," he composed.
"Yet, never did I at any point believe that that was all there was to it for me in the NFL."
Griffin, 27, was endorsed to the Seahawks' training crew subsequent to being deferred and elevated to Seattle's dynamic program later that season.
He showed up in 46 games with the Seahawks in three seasons and had nine handles, three quarterback hits and a sack.
