INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Defensive end Dwight Freeney will retire as a member of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday.

Team officials made the announcement Thursday.

Freeney was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro selection and played in three Super Bowls. He won his only title with the Colts following the 2006 season.

The speed rusher was best known for his trademark spin, a move defensive coaches chided and offensive linemen feared.

Freeney was Indy’s first-round draft pick in 2002 and stayed through 2012. He is second in Colts’ history with 107½ sacks, trailing only Robert Mathis.

He also played with San Diego, Arizona, Atlanta, Seattle and Detroit and is tied for No. 17 in league history with 125½ sacks.
