Jeff Saturday, former Colts and Packers center, annouces retirement


Jeff Saturday announced on Friday that he is retiring from the NFL. Saturday, 37, was a fixture in Indianapolis during the Peyton Mannings years and had spent the 2012 season with Green Bay.

“We’ll finish it with sunsets in Hawaii and call it a much better career than I would have anticipated,” Saturday said on the Grady and Big Joe Show on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis.

Saturday spent 13 of his 14 seasons in the NFL with the Colts. He started 182 games for the Colts in his career, all but the final 16 were with Peyton Manning as the teams quarterback.

He earned his sixth Pro Bowl invitation this year even after the Packers benched him in favor of Evan Dietrick-Smith.
