INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo announced his retirement from the NFL Tuesday.

Castonzo was drafted by the Colts in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and started 144 regular season games and eight postseason games with the team.

"As a kid, it was my dream to play in the NFL,” he said, via the team. “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.”

Castonzo started 12 games in 2020.
