Former Boise State player Colledge retires from NFL

Offensive lineman Daryn Colledge, who started four years with Boise State and went on to play nine seasons in the NFL and win a Super Bowl ring with the Packers, announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday.

Colledge, 33, played for the Packers (2006-10), Cardinals (2011-13) and Dolphins (2014).

“Extremely excited for the next chapter,’’ the former second-round draft pick said in a text message to the Idaho Statesman.

The announcement was made on Twitter by Colledge’s agent, Jeff Sperbeck of The Novo Agency.

“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 2 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,’’ Sperbeck wrote.
