Daryn Colledge, who started 137 of 141 games in career, retires from NFL

Offensive lineman Daryn Colledge is retiring from the NFL after nine seasons.

He started 13 games at left guard for the Miami Dolphins last season and 137 of the 141 games he played in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals and Dolphins.

His agent, Jeff Sperbeck of the NOVA Agency, announced the news Wednesday on Twitter.

"Extremely excited for the next chapter,'' Colledge told the Idaho Statesman in a text message.

Colledge, 33, was a second-round draft pick of the Packers in 2006 and won a ring with the team in Green Bay's Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
