GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers have released veteran center Jeff Saturday.
General manager Ted Thompson announced the move Monday. Saturday signed a 2-year deal with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent in March 2012 after playing 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. He had been the Colts' full-time starting center since 2000. He became a fan favorite, a key figure in the NFL Players Association and 1 of Peyton Manning's closest friends.
Saturday, a 6-time Pro Bowl selection in 14 seasons, was benched as a starter with two games left in the regular season in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith.
