Saturday to retire as a Colt on Thursday
Jeff Saturday is officially set to retire as an Indianapolis Colt.
Saturday, a 14-year NFL veteran, re-signed with Indianapolis - where he played 13 seasons - to retire with the Colts. He will make the retirement official on Thursday.
"The years I spent with the Colts were truly remarkable and I am honored to be able to retire as a member of one of the classiest organizations in the NFL," Saturday said in a press release from the Colts. "During my time in Indianapolis, I made tremendous relationships with numerous teammates, coaches and staff within the organization. It was also a pleasure playing for Mr. Irsay who is a wonderful owner. He gave tremendous support for my wife and I in all of our community endeavors. There were so many successful seasons that I was part of, but nothing tops our Super Bowl championship during the 2006 season. I'll never forget the support of Colts fans and the City of Indianapolis during my time here. My wife and I love this community and have established our roots here. We're looking forward to the next chapter in Indianapolis."
Saturday played last season with the Green Bay Packers. He also played a major role in negotiations between the NFL and its players' association during the 2011 lockout.
