The Jaguars have placed wide receiver Stephen Burton on the reserved/retired list, according to Mark Long of the Associated Press (on Twitter).
If the 24-year-old intends to retire, he’ll be joining a growing list of young players who are opting to move on from football. Ravens linebacker Rolando McClain called it a career earlier this week on the first day of team workouts rather than attempt a comeback. Over the offseason, 26-year-old running back Rashard Mendenhall opted to move on to the next phase of his career rather than absorb more hits on the gridiron.
Last season, Burton hauled in eight receptions for 76 yards.
