The 38-year-old defensive lineman is signing a one-day contract with the Indianapolis Colts. He had begun his career four straight seasons with at least 11.0 sacks while tallying double-digit sack totals seven times during his tenure with his total of 107.5 ranking second all-time in franchise history behind Robert Mathis (123.0).

Team officials made the announcement Thursday.

Thanks for the memories, @dwightfreeney!

The Indianapolis Colts will never allow another player to wear No. 93, choosing to honor the great Dwight Freeney by retiring his jersey while announcing his retirement from the NFL.

Dwight Freeney To Retire As A Colt

Dwight Freeney, one of the best pass-rushers to come out of Syracuse University, will retire Monday with the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced.

He recorded three sacks while with the Seahawks, giving him a career total of 125.5 sacks, tied for 17th in National Football League history.

But Hall of Fame conversation aside, Freeney will forever be remembered for the havoc he wreaked off the edge in his 11 seasons with the Colts. He was a member of the Colts' Super Bowl champion team in 2007.

Freeney was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro selection and played in three Super Bowls. He will be missed.
