Rishard Matthews Retires From NFL, Is Happy To Leave Behind "Brainwashing And Dividing Of Culture"


Wide receiver Rishard Matthews was released by the New Orleans Saints on Saturday. Head coach Sean Payton, speaking cryptically of the breakup, said of Matthews, “it’s not for everyone,” which together with a “left squad designation” accompanying his release indicated that Matthews voluntarily bailed on a reasonable chance at landing a regular season gig with the Saints.

Matthews took matters a step further Monday, announcing on Instagram that he has retired from football altogether. This was not your polite, boilerplate farewell to coaches and teammates—in a poem-like post titled “No Longer Exist,” Matthews listed some of what he’s leaving behind, a lot of which is sharply negative:

"Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things."
