Peyton Manning was prepared to enter this season with the belief that his offense would have to take control of games yet again this season. Now, that may get a little bit harder. Indianapolis Colts left tackle Tarik Glenn announced his retirement Tuesday after being the team's starting tackle since 1998. He had a successful 10-year run with the Colts, and the decision wasn't an easy one.

"It was really difficult," Glenn stated. "There are obviously a lot of emotions and relationships tied to the decision. I had to make sure that I weighed all my options and understood how serious the decision was. It was hard. I love my team. I've always felt accountable to my teammates, to be there for them, but I also have a responsibility and accountability to myself and my family."

Glenn was a first-round pick by the Colts in 1997 and started 154 games during his career, earning Pro Bowl appearances the past three years. The Colts appreciate Glenn's contributions to the organization.

"He's had a great career," said Colts president Bill Polian. "He has been a Pro Bowler. He's won a Super Bowl. He has been in the playoffs seven of his 10 years of his career. He's been part of one of the most productive offenses in the history of the National Football League. He's been a great contributor. We'll miss him."

Glenn didn't want to let his team down, but he simply lost some of the passion he used to have for the game.
