Undrafted rookie quarterback Connor Halliday has retired from football, just before the start of Washington Redskins minicamp on Friday, according to multiple reports.
Halliday thrived in Mike Leach's pass-heavy offense at Washington State and was the nation's leading passer last season when he suffered a gruesome ankle injury on Nov. 1. He was regarded as a talented passer but went undrafted due to concerns about his injury and his ability to adjust to NFL-style offenses.
In 35 games with the Cougars, Halliday completed 62 percent of his passes for 11,304 yards and 90 touchdowns.
