NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Patriots defensive end retires today at the age of 23

The New England Patriots defensive lineman announced his retirement on Wednesday. Armstead, 23, signed with the Patriots last year after a good season with the CFL.

Armstead, who went undrafted out of USC after suffering a heart attack in 2011, missed last season after developing an infection following a surgery unrelated to his heart.

We wish him the best of luck.
