Shaquem Griffin played college football at the University of Central Florida with his twin brother, Shaquill. Both players had NFL buzz, and Shaquill is a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars even to this day.

Shaquem, however, also had a more difficult path after having his hand amputated as a child. Yet, he defied the odds, made the NFL, and enjoyed a decent career with the Seattle Seahawks.

On Wednesday, Shaquem Griffin announced his retirement from the NFL in a Player’s Tribune post.

Griffin is set to join the NFL Legends Community, and he seems at peace with his decision. After all, he made it in the NFL. He played in all 16 games in 2018, 2019, and 2020.

Griffin has been an inspiration to everybody, and he will be remembered forever for his courage and relentless work ethic.

NFL fans from all over reacted to the news of Griffin’s retirement.

Griffin spent some time with the Miami Dolphins last summer but did not make the final roster, so he had been searching for a team since then.

Nonetheless, Shaquem Griffin is headed to the next chapter of his life and he seems content with his decision. Hats off to an improbable career for Griffin.
