Former Stanford offensive lineman Jonathan Martin says “NFL is not worth money”

Jonathan Martin has retired from the NFL

Jonathan Martin the former Miami Dolphins draft pick and Carolina Panther has deleted a tweet that he posted last night. That tweet was a shot at the NFL. 

“Gonna miss football… Was always my dream to play in the NFL. Proud to say I did it, the right way, even if for not as long as I wanted.”

A few moments later, he said:  “But ein the end, football was just a job, albeit a fun and well-paying one. Being in a wheelchair at 50 isn’t worth any amount of money.”

Martin will be best known for the bully scandal that cost both him and Richie Incognito a job in the NFL. Incognito was able to rebound, and by the sounds of it Martin did not want to rebound and play.
