Former Cowboys offensive tackle Marc Colombo made a surprising appearance in the hallway at Valley Ranch on Friday.
Jokingly, he said he was about to sign "a 10-year contract."
As it turns out, Colombo basically signing a deal longer than that as he is expected to retire after 10 seasons. But after spending one year in Miami, Colombo will officially retire as a member of the Cowboys, after he officially signs a one-year deal.
The Cowboys are expected to make an official announcement on Monday.
Colombo spent seasons in Dallas, which signed him in the middle of the 2005 campaign after being released by the Bears. Injuries plagued Colombo for the first three years of his career after Chicago drafted him in the first round of 2002.
Colombo was a fixture for the Cowboys at right tackle for five years but released him not long after drafting Tyron Smith in the first round. Colombo, 33, signed with the Dolphins and spent last year in Miami, starting all 16 games.
