Colts tackle Anthony Castonzo is calling it a career.

Castonzo announced today that he is retiring from the NFL.

“As a kid, it was my dream to play in the NFL,” Castonzo said. “I played my first full season of tackle football in second grade. Now I have played my last. As I sit here now, after a 10 year NFL career, I am extremely proud of all the hard work and sacrifice that allowed me to evolve that dream into a goal, and ultimately into a reality unlike anything I could have even imagined.”

The 32-year-old Castonzo was the Colts’ first-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft. He started 144 games in 10 seasons.

  1. That’s a tough loss for the colts. He had a shaky rookie season but ever since then he has been a premier tackle. They are going to have to find a replacement through the draft. I wonder if Rivers is next?

  2. Andrew Luck paved the road, leave relatively healthy, young, financially set. Seems like a good guy, happy for him. Hell of a lineman too which will be tough to replace.

  3. Judging by the Bills inhability to pressure Phillip rivers last Saturday I would consider this a pretty big loss for the Colts O line…

    They did that with Castonzo out after having ankle surgery… Jared Veldheer played in his place and now will be helping the Packers to SB55!

  5. Does Jason Veldheer have a taxi service? That’s the only way the Packers get to the Super Bowl!
