Center Phil Costa retires after four seasons
Former Cowboys center Phil Costa has called it quits.
Six months after he and Brooke Hogan called off their engagement, two months after the Cowboys released him, and more than a month after he signed a two-year, $2.7 million contract with the Colts, center Phil Costa has decided to retire.
As such, the Colts placed him Monday on the reserve/retired list.
“Phil feels it’s in his best interest to retire from the game,” general manager Ryan Grigson said in a statement. “We certainly understand and wish him nothing but the best.”
The decision was surprising, considering the 26-year-old just signed his contract with Indianapolis and was set to enter his fifth season in the league.
Though Dallas drafted Travis Frederick in the first round of last year's draft, eventually leaving Costa without a job, it seemed as though he'd have a chance to compete with 2013 fourth-round pick Khaled Holmes for Indianapolis' starting center spot. That obviously won't be happening now.
