Former Cowboys quarterback Keyvon Frazier announced his retirement on Friday, planning to go into business.
“Coming to the preparation for the seventh training camp, I understand that something is missing“, Fraser wrote on the social network. “Something is not right. These last six years have been a roller coaster. From being a one-offer kid to Central Michigan to becoming a major player on Team America, I have no regrets. A lot of people know me as a main special teams player and some people know me as a guy who has gone through a lot of injuries but it’s time to change that opinion people will no longer just call me a footballer football is what I played but it doesn’t define me as a person. I am a man of God, a husband, a father, and an entrepreneur. With that said, today I will give up the game I have been playing for the past 20 years to continue my entrepreneurial journey and really change our community.”
The Raiders fired Frazier in March and he has been a free agent ever since.
The Cowboys selected him in the sixth round in 2016, and he spent his first four seasons in Dallas. He played 461 snaps defensively and 638 snaps on special teams with the Cowboys and scored 67 tackles.
He appeared in 15 Dolphin Games in 2020.
He missed out on the Bengals’ roster after last year’s preseason. Frazier finally signed with the Raiders practice team in December and appeared in one game for Las Vegas during the regular season, playing eight snaps on special teams.
After the Raiders lost to the Bengals in the postseason, Frazier signed a futures deal with Las Vegas in late January.
