Daryn Colledge tweets of his release from Cardinals
On Saturday, the 32-year-old offensive lineman sent out a "goodbye" tweet of sorts, wishing his team and its fan base good luck while thanking both parties for "an amazing opportunity."
"Wanna thank you the fans and the Cardinals for an amazing opportunity," Colledge wrote at 5:54 p.m. MDT on Saturday. "A great organization headed in the right direction. Wish ya the best," he went on.
The NFL's free agent negotiating period began earlier on Saturday.
With the release, the Cardinals will have cut $4.55 million from the books, sending them into free agency at approximately $20 million under the league salary cap.
Colledge had two years remaining on his contract.
The move has not yet been made official by the Cardinals.

As the evening progressed, Colledge began to elaborate via the same medium, reiterating his gratitude for the Cardinals fan base while offering the air of strength through the challenges that await.
Thanks for all the support guys, it means a ton, I've enjoyed my time. Between the Pack and Card fans my next team has a lot to live up to.— Daryn Colledge (@DarynColledge71) March 9, 2014
For now while I wait for FA and my future. I'm gonna watch Toy Story with my kids and put in an early ballot for Father of the Year. #NoBigs— Daryn Colledge (@DarynColledge71) March 9, 2014
