Former Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo has officially moved to the reserve/retired list, per the league’s transaction wire on Monday.

None of this is a surprise. It is simply a formality that Castonzo goes on the list making his retirement official. Now, the Colts face an offseason of trying to find his replacement.

Castonzo spent 10 seasons anchoring the left side of the offensive line for the Colts and had a strong run of campaigns under Frank Reich in recent seasons. On 417 pass-blocking snaps, Castonzo allowed two sacks and 18 total pressures in 2020, per Pro Football Focus.

They are likely going to have to go a bit cheaper at the position given the need of signing an edge rusher in free agency and the extensions coming up. But they can still get away with going cheaper in free agency and then drafting another tackle to compete for the starting role.

Regardless, the retirement of Castonzo is now official as the Colts will look to find his replacement.
