He became an unrestricted free agent and on July 29, 2011, Colledge announced on his Twitter page that he and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to a 5-year contract.[1]

On March 8, 2014 Arizona told Colledge he would be released into free agency on Tuesday, March 11. By waiting until Tuesday, the Cardinals were able to spread the cap charge of releasing Colledge over a period of two years.[5]
