Former Pro Bowl safety Bob Sanders has been released by the Indianapolis Colts.

Sanders, who turns 30 on February 24, was taken by the Colts in the second round of the 2004 draft out of the University of Iowa.

His playmaking skills earned him Pro Bowl berths in 2005 and 2007 and he was a key member of the side that won Super Bowl XLI.

But a succession of injury problems have limited him to nine regular-season appearances in the last three years.

"I want to thank (owner) Mr (Jim) Irsay for the opportunity to play with the Colts," Sanders said in a statement.

"I appreciate all he and the organisation did for me throughout my career, and I always will consider myself a Colt.

"I want to thank the fans also for their great support. They played a big part in making my seven years with the team very rewarding."
