SUPER BOWL CHAMPION BJ DANIELS took to Instagram late Tuesday night to officially announce his retirement from football.
Daniels had recently been playing in Your Call Football, a league where online fan balloting determines the next play, before signing with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders. He would be let go on June 9.
I’m happy to say that I have spent 6years in the NFL and I am so thankful for EVERY experience because I have learn a lot and lived a lot! So thankful for the 3 Super Bowl experiences and the people I have met all across the country! It was and incredible journey and I thank God for his many blessing! Hanging up the cleats so focusing on my next venture! Going to continue to influence, motivate and help other for the REST of my life! The platform is set my IMPACT will be valuable! #OnlyGod
After accounting for over 10,000 total yards and 77 touchdowns in his four years at USF, the Tallahassee native was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
He would spend most of his career as a practice squad QB/WR, serving stints with the Niners, then the Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, and the Atlanta Falcons.
The highlight of his career, obviously, came during his rookie season when he got himself a ring as part of Seattle’s Super Bowl XLVIII winning squad.
SUPER BOWL CHAMPION BJ DANIELS could’ve became TWO-TIME SUPER BOWL CHAMPION BJ DANIELS the following year if Russell Wilson wasn’t picked off by Malcolm Butler at the goal line, and he could’ve possibly became THREE-TIME SUPER BOWL CHAMPION BJ DANIELS if the Falcons didn’t blow a 28-3 lead.
Good luck in all of your future endeavors BJ!
