Jeff Saturday appeared on 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis on Friday afternoon to announce he will retire after this weekend’s Pro Bowl. Saturday ends his career after 14 seasons, 13 of those spent with the Colts.

“We’ll finish it with sunsets in Hawaii and call it a much better career than I would have anticipated,” said Saturday.

Saturday’s career started as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina and got cut by the Ravens in 1998. He signed with the Colts in 1999 and started 182 games with the team. All but the final 16 of Saturday’s games were with Peyton Manning at quarterback. Saturday’s career ends with his sixth and final Pro Bowl appearance.

Word is, he was quite a prick to the Denver center when he politely asked him for advice.
