High school career

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 lineman for the Patriots.[1]

College career

Green Bay Packers

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, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 31–25.[4] Following the game, he became an unrestricted free agent.

Arizona Cardinals

On July 29, 2011, Colledge announced on his Twitter page that he and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to a five-year contract,[1] and he played three seasons with the team.

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

Miami Dolphins

On June 30, 2014, the Miami Dolphins acquired Daryn Colledge through free agency, signing him to a one-year contract worth $2 million.[6][7]
