After 11 seasons in the NFL with the Colts, OT Ryan Diem officially announced his retirement on Monday. He released a statement thanking his family, his coaches and the fans for supporting him during his career.

Diem started 150 games during his NFL career, all with Indianapolis. He announced last Friday his intensions to retire, writing on Twitter it was time “for a new chapter” of his life. In his statement, he wrote how honored he was to play with the Colts.

 “There isn’t any other club in the NFL that had what we had over the past decade or so. I’m not even talking about the wins; I’m talking about the camaraderie and leadership in our locker room,” Diem wrote. “We all know several players that have been on other teams, and always say that it’s different elsewhere. I feel so fortunate to have been in that locker room with teammates that I can call life long friends and men that would hold each other accountable on and off the field. I am proud of the standard that has been set in our locker room and hope that the traditions of excellence and great character continue on.”
