Marc Columbo Signs One-Year Deal To Retire As A Cowboy

Marc Columbo is going to retire as a member of the Dallas Cowboys after signing a ceremonial deal that would end his career with the franchise.

Columbo was the Cowboys' starting right tackle from 2006-10 before being released at the end of the lockout in 2011 for rookie prospect Tyron Smith. He's probably better known for owning several Smashburger franchises in the Dallas area with his former teammate Leonard Davis.

Still, Columbo says there's nothing like being a Cowboy.

"I feel like this place made me the football player I always wanted to be. It's just an amazing place with an unbelievable owner. To be able to play at other places you realie there's nothing like being a Cowboy ...

" ... I just think being able to retire as a Dallas Cowboy is something I always envisioned after I'd been here for a few years. We're living here now. The fan support has been great and I'd just like to thank everybody."
