Former Clemson safety Jadar Johnson has left training camp over the weekend and will retire from football.

His agent Trey Robinson released the following statement on Sunday on his client's behalf.

"After seriously weighing his options, Jadar has decided to retire from football today to pursue other interests," the statement said. "This was not an easy decision to make, but it is the right decision for him. He has new ventures that he wants to pursue and he values his health. Jadar is very grateful to the Giants' organization for the opportunity they provided him. Ath this time, Jadar would like for the media to respect his and his family's privacy as he closes this chapter in his life."

Johnson signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent after not being drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

For his college career at Clemson, Johnson had 106 tackles, nine interceptions, and 12 pass breakups in 1,484 snaps over 54 games (17 starts) in his career. In 2016, Johnson was named First-team All-ACC (media, coaches) and produced 65 tackles, five interceptions and seven pass breakups in 913 snaps over 15 games (15 starts).
