160322-colledge-950Former Packers guard Daryn Colledge has announced he has enlisted in the Army National Guard for an eight-year term.

Colledge, a 2006 second-round pick out of Boise State, played in Green Bay through Super Bowl XLV. After starting at left guard in the Super Bowl, Colledge departed as an unrestricted free agent, spending 2011-13 with the Arizona Cardinals, and finished his career with the Miami Dolphins in 2014.

Colledge posted the following on Twitter:

“Today I am proud to announce I have thrown my hat back in the ring and decided to join a new team, start a new chapter, and seek out a new adventure. After a year of retirement, a much needed 160322-colledge-300-csvacation, and overdue time with my family, I’ve decided to hit the free agent market. After much deliberation, and discussion, I’m proud to sign my longest term deal of all time, 8 yrs and have enlisted in the Army National Guard. After all my time in the NFL, traveling, meeting, and supporting the troops, I’ve decided to step up and stand shoulder to shoulder with them. This was not a decision made lightly, we live in an ever changing world, and at this time in my life I feel it is best served with me in defense of my family, state, country. With the support of my family, friends I look forward to the work, and road ahead.”
