The 32-year-old played his entire 10-year career with the Colts after being their first round pick in 2011. His rookie season saw Peyton Manning get injured and the team went 2-14. The franchise then drafted Andrew Luck, who Castonzo was with for Luck’s entire career. For the last two seasons he has protected Jacoby Brissett and Philip Rivers.
Near the end of the season, Castonzo suffered an ankle injury and was lost for the season. He has since decided to call it a career.
The Colts will have to replace a very good left tackle this offseason, which won’t be easy.
