There had been some question if the Patriots were going to release LB Jerod Mayo to free up some space but Mayo took to Instagram and made the decision a whole lot easier.
Jerod Mayo has announced that he will be retiring a Patriot. That is fantastic. Mayo was a great player but as of late, injuries have slowed him down. The way things were looking, the Patriots were going to be releasing Mayo.
I respect Jerod tremendously for this. He could have been cut, gotten himself on a lesser team and served a role, but why bother. Go out in style. He has a ring and he has his health.
Way to go #51… All the best
