Colledge, 34, started 137 games in his nine-year career with the Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins. He retired after the 2014 season.At one point in his career, Colledge started 122 straight games. He earned a championship ring with the Green Bay Packers in their Super Bowl XLV triumph over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Packers selected him in the second round of the 2006 draft out of Boise State.
