7:32pm: The release of Colledge will be designated as a post June 1 cut, so his $4.55MM cap hit will be spread over two years, per Kent Somers of azcentral.com (via Twitter).
7:06pm: The Cardinals have released offensive guard Daryn Colledge, according to a tweet from the eight-year pro: “Wanna thank you the fans and the Cardinals for an amazing opportunity. A great organization headed in the right direction. Wish ya the best.”
Colledge would have counted $7.28MM against the cap in 2014, but the move carries with it a dead money hit of $4.55MM. Overall, Arizona will save roughly $2.73MM, per OverTheCap.com.
Never having missed a game as a professional, there figures to be a decent market for Colledge, who turns 33 in August. FOX Sports 1 Senior NFL reporter Alex Marvez, who knows South Florida well, projects the Dolphins as a potential landing spot (via Twitter). Colledge and Miami head coach Joe Philbin were together with the Packers from 2006-’10.
