Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette made the decision to retire from the NFL. Lockette was an undrafted free agent from Fort Valley State University-who was signed on to the Seahawks. He won his first Super Bowl Ring back in 2013 as they defeated the Denver Broncos.
During November, a game against the Dallas Cowboys, he suffered a traumatic neck injury that left him to end his season which lead to his decision to step away from football. While recuperating from his neck injury, Lockette still managed to root for his teammates.
Here is a clip of Ricardo Lockette announcing his retirement:
He is a week shy of his 30th birthday and he played for other NFL teams like the Chicago Bears and the San Francisco 49ers. Besides Lockette retirement his other teammate Marshawn Lynch also announced his retirement through social media.
