Theo Riddick: Chooses retirement

Riddick is retiring, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the start of training camp, Riddick now will retire from football. The two things may be unrelated, as he was far from a sure thing to make the Week 1 roster in Las Vegas, where Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard should have the backfield in good shape.
