While some players have press conferences or make announcements on their own social media, many times an NFL player’s career comes to an end much more under the radar. This appears to be the case with Steelers offensive lineman B.J. Finney, who has reportedly retired from the NFL for medical reasons after seven seasons. This per Kellis Robinett of the Wichita Eagle/Kansas City Star:
Going undrafted in the 2015 NFL draft, B.J. Finney was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. At the time of his signing, video of Finney‘s family reacting to his signing went viral.
Spending the 2015 season on the Steelers practice squad, Finney signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Steelers and made the team as a reserve lineman for the 2016 season.
