One year after saying goodbye to longtime quarterback Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts are parting with another of the franchise’s all-time great players.

The team announced Friday that it would not attempt to re-sign Dwight Freeney, whose contract expired after the 2012 season.

“Few people have meant as much to the success of the Indianapolis Colts as Dwight Freeney,” owner Jim Irsay said in a statement.

“He has been a dominant player, which is all the more impressive considering his size for his position, and he has won a lot of games for this franchise. Dwight was an artist, a joy to watch, and the dedication he put toward his craft was a rare quality. We will miss him, but look forward to his future induction into the Hall of Fame and Colts Ring of Honor.”
