Shaquem Griffin, a former linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks, announced his retirement from the NFL 

The only known one-handed player in NFL history, Shaquem Griffin, has decided to end his playing career 

When Griffin ran a 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, the league took notice 

He recorded 25 tackles and one sack throughout his three-year career before being released in 2020

He wrote after the release "I didn't want people to think, "Aw, the player with one hand was cut." Man, I don't do sympathy. I dislike it when people feel bad for me, " 

In his blog entry, he describes how professional football with his twin brother Shaquill Griffin's was always his plan B 

He wrote in the post that "the moment has arrived for me to retire from professional football." Now is the time for me to carry out my Plan A 

Griffin's retirement was praised by the NFL, which tweeted that he is "a true inspiration."
