Bills offensive guard Isaac Asiata announced his retirement from the NFL on Tuesday.

Asiata, 26, was on the Dolphins’ practice squad most of last season. He played one game.

The Dolphins waived him with an injury designation in May. He reverted to injured reserve before Miami cut him from I.R. in June.

The Bills signed Asiata before training camp began last week, and he participated in the first week of work.

Asiata appeared in two games in his NFL career, both with the Dolphins.

He becomes the second player on the Bills’ roster to retire in the past two weeks. Veteran safety Rafael Bush, 32, called it quits last week after nine seasons in the NFL.

  1. “Retire” is the new “quit” because it sounds better. Everything is about branding and image now. Call it what it is. He quit. The reason doesn’t matter. He said he was going to do something and then quit instead.

  2. I think these “retirements” actually make a very positive statement about the current Bills roster. Guys are signing with the idea that they have a real shot to make the team. When they actually start working out with the team, they see that it is a well stacked team and one they probably can’t make. They retire now instead of working their butt off and then still getting the same results. I think it indicates the quality of the Bills roster, at least for interior linemen and defensive backs
