NFL Rumors: Indianapolis Colts’ Phil Costa to retire


Back in March, the Dallas Cowboys decided to cut ties with center Phil Costa after an injury plagued 2012 season and a 2013 season that saw him become a backup (Costa was the Cowboys’ starter in 2011).

A few weeks later, the Indianapolis Colts signed Costa to a two-year, $2.75 million contract in hopes that Costa would become their starting center.

On Monday, Costa decided to retire from the NFL.

Brian McIntyre was the first to break the news.

Colts’ general manager Ryan Grigson released a statement via Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star.

 

Costa went undrafted out of Maryland in 2010 and signed with the Cowboys.

He played in 26 career NFL games.

Costa’s decision leaves the Colts with only Khaled Holmes on the roster at center although last year’s starter, Samson Satele, remains a free agent.
