A former Clemson football player has decided to call it quits on his NFL career.

The New York Jets announced the retirement of linebacker B.J. Goodson on Wednesday.

Goodson signed with the Jets on Sept. 14 and played seven snaps on special teams against the New England Patriots last Sunday.

Goodson has made 43 starts during his NFL career dating back to 2016. He also spent time with the New York Giants (2016-18), Green Bay Packers (2019) and the Cleveland Browns (2020).

With the Browns in 2020, Goodson tallied a career-high 87 total tackles to go with six pass deflections and two interceptions.
