Telvin Smith announced on Thursday he does not plan on playing football in 2019. On Saturday Afternoon, he opened up about the situation via a Story on his personal Instagram.
In the Video Telvin says, "Why is it so crazy I want to step away from the game? Y'all just chill. Everything's solid, you feel me? Stop going crazy. It's getting aggravating. You feel me? Football ain't everything. Y'all better wake the f*** up."
Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone has been fully supportive of Telvin's decision. “I’m just hoping that if he needs me, I’m here,” Marrone said via Phil Heilman of the Florida Times-Union. “That is all that I know. As far as the process and everything, I don’t know.”
