Jeff Saturday had planned to take some time after the Pro Bowl to mull his NFL future. He didn't wait until kickoff, and he probably won't have to look long for his next job.
The long-time Indianapolis Colts center announced his intention to retire after 14 seasons today during an appearance on 1070 The Fan.
"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."
Saturday was a very popular five-time Pro Bowl player while with the Colts from 1999-2011. He signed a two-year $7.75 million free agent contract with the Green Bay Packers in March, at which point two things were made clear:
No. 1. Saturday said he and his family would make Indianapolis their home when his playing days were finished. No. 2, Colts owner Jim Irsay said he would welcome having Saturday back in the Colts organization.
