ESPN: Jeff Saturday Signs With Green Bay

Some Expected Saturday To Follow Manning

Longtime Colts center Jeff Saturday has signed a deal with the Green Bay Packers, ESPN reported Friday.

It was widely assumed that the free agent would follow former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning to Denver after he signed with the Broncos last week.

Saturday would replace Packers center Scott Wells, who signed last week with the Rams.

Saturday joined the Colts in 1999 and became the starting center within a year.

ESPN cited sources who said the Colts offered Saturday a front-office job with the team.

"We wish Jeff Sat the best, I wanted him to work for team full time but he wanted to go at it one more year," Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted. "He's as good of a man as it gets."

Indy is undergoing a major rebuilding project. More than half of next season's offensive starters could be new.
