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.
