LJ Scott decides to leave Cleveland Browns, quit football
You typically don’t publicly hear about guys deciding to leave their team and quit football. The Cleveland Browns witnessed it with one of the guys they brought in recently.
According to multiple reports, LJ Scott decided to leave Cleveland and quit football. Scott only lasted just two days with the Browns before deciding to leave.
Earlier this month, Scott was at the Baltimore Ravens’ rookie minicamp as well. It’s currently unknown why Scott may quit football entirely after signing with the Browns.
Scott went undrafted after spending four seasons at Michigan State. At Michigan State, Scott was one of the school’s all-time leading rushers, rushing for 2,855 yards.
He also had 25 rushing touchdowns, 43 receptions for 403 yards, and two receiving touchdowns. His college career didn’t end as expected after playing in just five games in 2018 due to injury.
Scott decided to declare for the NFL Draft this offseason even though he could’ve applied for a medical redshirt to possibly play another season in college. He opted not to by playing in Michigan State’s bowl game against Oregon.
The Spartans ended up losing the game, but Scott had his sights set on the NFL. Although, now, it seems his mind is focused elsewhere for the time being.
It’s an uphill battle for undrafted rookies to make an NFL roster, so it’s understandable to have doubts along the way. Hopefully for Scott, he can figure out whatever is bothering him and get back to playing football again.
If not football, hopefully he finds something he loves doing and makes it a career.
