SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – On April Fool’s Day, recently retired NFL defensive lineman Haloti Ngata posted on Instagram and Twitter that he signed with the Utah Warriors of Major League Rugby.

Come to find out that he did not sign with them. The five-time Pro-Bowler and Super Bowl Champion announced his retirement from the NFL two weeks ago.

Ngata played Rugby for Highland High School before committing solely to football after high school.

The Warriors sent out a press release on the news, but at the very bottom of the release, they said “For more information about Ngata’s signing, the Haloti Ngata Family Foundation or about receiving ‘2 for 1’ priced tickets to this Friday’s game for reading this all the way through, call the Utah Warriors Front Office at 801-935-4045.”
