“Want a day in the life being me. Everything that happens ‘tween you and ya wife on TMZ. Tryna kick the door in this rap s— like a B and E. Speaking to the blind, it’s no wonder they wasn’t foreseeing me. …

“It’s hard receiving a message from God that he’s taking back what you’ve blessed with. I’m foaming at the mouth, they know I ain’t the one to mess with.”

Waller didn’t say one way or the other he was going to walk away from football. He said on Friday a decision was going to be made very soon. ESPN reported that the Giants were expecting Waller to retire.

If he does choose to play, it would be Waller’s 10th year in the league. He was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Las Vegas Raiders last offseason.

He only played 12 games for the Giants and had 52 catches for 552 yards and a touchdown.

During the spring, Waller and Plum filed for divorce after barely a year of marriage. He appeared to reference the divorce in a music video from last month.
