Brooke Hogan’s ex-boyfriend Phil Costa retires from NFL

Phil Costa Colts

It’s been a rough six months for Phil Costa.

The guy broke up with Brooke Hogan, barely played last season, and now he’s retiring from the NFL.

The Indianapolis Colts announced on Monday that they are placing the center on the reserve-retired list.

“Phil feels it’s in his best interest to retire from the game,” said Colts General Manager Ryan Grigson. “We certainly understand and wish him nothing but the best.”

Costa was with the Cowboys from 2010-2013, but he only played in six games over the past two seasons. He signed a two-year, $2.7 million deal with the Colts in March, so it’s strange that he’s decided to quit a month later. This is entirely personal speculation, but maybe he’s dealing with some medical issues that are making it tough for him to play, so he’s decided to retire.

Costa really didn’t come on our radar until last year when we saw that he became engaged to Hulk Hogan’s famous, attractive daughter. The two broke up in November after Brooke realized they had moved too fast too soon. Hulk actually seemed pretty pleased over that development. Rough year for Phil.

Brooke Hogan reportedly calls off engagement with Phil Costa

Brooke Hogan, the daughter of wrestling legend Hulk Hogan, has supposedly called off her engagement to Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Phil Costa. According to TMZ, the couple broke up a few weeks ago.

Costa proposed to Hogan back in June in Las Vegas. Brooke called the proposal the “happiest moment of my life” at the time and said she could not wait to marry her best friend. Sources reportedly told TMZ that Hogan thought her relationship with Costa was moving too quickly and that she needed some time to focus on her music career, so she decided to call it quits. Brooke is said to have recently moved back to LA to finish her new album and be closer to her mother.

Hulk Hogan, who recently admitted he contemplated suicide in 2007, has been a big supporter of Costa and the Cowboys since the 26-year-old began dating his daughter. Unlike her fake relationship with Bully Ray that ended when TNA parted ways with Brooke, her engagement with Costa was real-world stuff.

Brooke Hogan, the daughter of legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, got engaged to Dallas Cowboys center Phil Costa this weekend.

Hogan and Costa were in Las Vegas when Costa dropped to one knee and proposed. Hogan posted the pictures to her Instagram account on Saturday.

“Happiest moment of my LIFE. I am marrying my best friend. I woulnt choose anyone else. I am so lucky and so grateful,” Hogan wrote on Instagram.

Captioning the photo where Costa is seen slipping a ring on her finger, Hogan wrote, “I look scary but this is the face of total SHOCK.”

Costa appears to have proposed from a spot on the Bellagio property across from the Paris hotel, because the mock Eiffel Tower makes for a sweet background to the photos.

Hogan is a singer, actress and model, and she currently works for TNA wrestling. Costa went undrafted out of Maryland in 2010, but he was signed by the Cowboys. He has played in 23 games over the past three seasons, but has been limited by knee and ankle injuries.

Here is another look at the couple:
