A former college football standout wide receiver has decided to retire from the game of football after one season in the NFL.

Michael Clark, who played collegiately at Marshall, has reportedly decided to retire from the NFL.

The 22-year-old wide receiver caught four passes for 41 yards in 2017.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport first reported the news.

"Packers WR Michael Clark is actually retiring, source said," Rapoport tweeted.

Aaron Nagler has confirmed the news. "Confirming (Rapoport)'s report that Packers WR Michael Clark is being placed on the reserve/did not report list. I'm told he is retiring," he tweeted.

Clark was an undrafted free agent out of college in 2017. Best of luck in retirement, Michael.
