BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Bills offensive guard Isaac Asiata missed practice on Tuesday, not because of an injury or for a rest day, but because he's decided to call it a career.

Asiata posted to his Twitter account early Tuesday evening, informing fans of his decision to retire from the NFL.

The 23-year-old player was entering his third season in the league. He was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft and had spent the majority of last season on the team's practice squad. He was signed by the Bills shortly before Training Camp.

Asiata is the second player to retire this month. Safety Rafael Bush, a nine-year NFL veteran, announced his decision to retire from the league on July 19th.
