PACKERS RETIREMENT ALERT: Wide Receiver In His Second Season In The NFL Announces His Retirement, Weeks After News of Injuries Appear.

After suffering an injury while playing for the Green Bay Packers, a wide receiver in their second season in the NFL reportedly announced their retirement. Following an injury sustained while playing for the team earlier in the spring, the athlete was waived by the Packers.

Thyrick Pitts Jr. was signed by the Green Bay Packers in December.

Thyrick Pitts Jr. was added to the practice squad by the Packers in December, according to their website. He distinguished himself in college:

(rick-the-thighs) Rookie Pitts (6-2, 201) was first signed by the Chicago Bears in May 2023 as an undrafted free agent after graduating from the University of Delaware.

Early in August, the Bears dismissed him, and the New England Patriots grabbed him off waivers. He later attended the Patriots’ training camp and briefly was a member of the practice squad in New England.

Pitts participated in 59 games while in college, hauling in 172 receptions for 2,429 yards (14.1 average) and 23 touchdowns. For the 2020–21 season, he was named to the first team of the All-CAA, for the 2021 autumn season, to the second team, and for the 2022 season, to the third team. Pitts will play for the Packers wearing No. 16.

Pitts declared his retirement.

Patriots Today’s Zac Ventola claims that Pitts used Instagram to announce his retirement. He intends to pursue financial management as a new career:

“I’ve held a football in my hand since I was four years old. I’ve had the great fortune to participate in this game every autumn for the previous 21 years.

I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone who shared in this adventure and to all the new family I’ve made. My boyhood goals of playing college football and getting into the NFL have been realized thanks to you.
