Darryn Colledge To Retire

Dolphins offensive lineman Daryn Colledge has announced that he will retire from the NFL, reports Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter).

The decision was announced through his agency in a series of Tweets. The overall statement reads as followed:

“My friend and client Daryn Colledge is retiring after nine years in the NFL. Daryn did not miss a start, due to injury, during his four years of high school, four years at Boise St, and his first eight-and-a-half years in the NFL, where he played for the Packers, Dolphins, and Cardinals. He had 122 consecutive starts in the NFL. He was a pro’s pro. He retires with a Super Bowl Championship, his health in tact, great friendships, and financial stability. He is a licensed pilot, and the owner of his own plane, and partners with two former Packer offensive linemen in a wine label, 3 FAT GUYS. He’s moving to Italy for a year with his best friend, and wife, Megan and their two beautiful daughters. We should all be so lucky. He’s truly a renaissance man. Congratulations on a career well played, and a life well lived, thus far.”

Colledge played 13 games at left guard for the Dolphins in 2014, struggling throughout the season. Still, the team will have to look for another option along the interior of the offensive line for this upcoming season.
