At a time when the Colts are poised to strengthen their offensive line, they’re going to have to replace a regular.
The team announced that veteran blocker Joe Reitz was retiring after nine seasons.
The 31-year-old Reitz started six games last year at right tackle, but has been a versatile player for them since 2010.
He entered the league in 2008 as an undrafted rookie with the Ravens, and also had a stint with the Dolphins. But he found steady work with the Colts, and found his spot.
And for a guy who never played college football (he was a basketball player at Western Michigan), that’s a pretty good run.
