He was selected in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and also played for the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins. He played college football for Boise State University.

High school career[edit]

Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Colledge grew up in nearby North Pole. He graduated from North Pole High School and was a first team all state defensive linemen.[1]

College career[edit]

A four-year starter at Boise State under head coach Dan Hawkins, Colledge was a two-time All-WAC selection in 2004 and 2005, and was second-team in 2003 as a sophomore.[2][3]

Professional career[edit]

Colledge with the Miami Dolphins

Colledge was selected by the Packers in the second round (47th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft, the highest-ever selection from the state of Alaska. During his fifth and final season in Green Bay in 2010, the Packers won Super Bowl XLV. 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 can spread the cap charge of releasing Colledge over two years.[4]

On June 30, 2014 the Miami Dolphins acquired Daryn Colledge through free agency, signing him to a one-year contract worth $2,000,000.[5][6]

After the 2014 season, Colledge retired.[7]
