On Tuesday night, a veteran NFL tight end announced his retirement from the game of football.

Matt LaCosse, 29, took to Twitter on Tuesday night with a message for his fans.

He thanked those who helped him reach the NFL and play the sport he enjoys.

"I'm saying goodbye to the sport I love, the sport I've sacrificed so much for,

And I really want to say thank you to the people who have sacrificed so much for me."

LaCosse said in a statement on Twitter.

LaCosse initially joined the New York Giants as an un-draft free agent after the 2015 NFL Draft.

After a hamstring injury at camp, the Giants forgave him.

He spent a few days with the New York Jets before eventually returning to the Giants for the 2015 season.

LaCose spent three years with the Giants before joining the Denver Broncos for two seasons.

He eventually signed with the New England Patriots, where he spent a further two seasons.
