Report: Marc Colombo To Retire A Cowboy

Originally drafted by the Bears, Colombo was with Dallas fro 2005 to 2010



    In a move similar (but surely and understandably much less publicized) to that of the Texas Rangers’ Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez, former Dallas Cowboys’ tackle Marc Colombo will sign a one-day contract with the team in order to retire a Cowboy.

    According to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, the move will be announced on Monday--which, as it happens, is the same day the Rangers will hold their ceremony for the official retirement of Pudge.

    Out of Boston College, Colombo was taken in the first round of the 2002 draft by the Bears. He came to the Cowboys after being cut by Chicago in 2005, and stayed through 2010, starting in 72 games in that span. His last season was spent in Miami.

    Aside from his work for the Cowboys, Colombo was one of three former Cowboys’ offensive linemen--the others being Cory Procter and Leonard Davis--in the metal band Free Reign.
