BALTIMORE – Former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Brandon Knight has indicated he’s taking a hiatus from football to focus on his sanity.
Knight moved from the Cowboys to the Baltimore Ravens this week, via waivers, but did not report to his new team.
In a message posted to his Twitter account on Thursday, Knight thanked the Ravens for the opportunity.
“From now on, I have decided to take a break from football and focus on my mental health. Although it was a difficult decision, it was necessary for me to return home with my family. I plan to come back next season, ”he wrote.
The 24-year-old Knight has played 21 games with the Cowboys, in addition to two seasons. The Ravens have placed him on a reserve list for unreported players.
