He won’t be returning next season but CB Rashean Mathis is taking his leave from the Jacksonville Jaguars like a gentleman.

After the news was official last week, he stated: “I can only praise God. He allowed me

to be humble coming in. Regardless of how hard you work, or how many hours and how much pain and effort you think you put into it, it’s still a blessing to play in the NFL, to do what we do. I just thank God he allowed me to stay humble in the process when the process began and while our process is ending.”

“I’m appreciative for just being able to play in the National Football League.”  Mathis did more than just play for the Jaguars. He also grew into a locker room leader, and by the 2011 lockout, he was the team’s player representative – and also a player who helped organize players’ practices that offseason.

“It takes more than yourself to understand how to go about leading these guys with family and kids,” Mathis said. “Once again, I give credit to God for allowing me to find that within myself and encouraging guys through tough times.”
