On Friday, the New England Patriots announced

That wide receiver Malcolm Perry is retired.

The 25-year-old Perry started his NFL career in 2020. The Miami Dolphins selected him in the seventh round of the draft.

He was then claimed a waiver by the Patriots in 2021.

Unfortunately, he never really developed into a game-changer.

According to Doug Quaid of Pro Football Focus,

Perry now plans to serve in the Navy as he has played football.

The NFL world is wishing Perry the best because

He gets ready for the next chapter of his career.

Perry was a fan favorite in college, earning the AAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2019.

In his final season in the Navy, Perry had 2,017 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns.

He was nearly unstoppable in the spread option offense.
