Yasinskas adds that Freeney isn’t a “long-term answer,” but he could provide some much needed help opposite of John Abraham next season.
The Colts informed Freeney that they have no intentions of bringing him back next season, so he will be free to sign with a new team as of March 13. Freeney, 32, wasn’t able to have the same kind of impact as a 3-4 outside linebacker that he had in the Colts previous 4-3 defensive scheme. While he is starting to get up there in age, he should still has some productive years left in him.
The Seahawks have been mentioned as another speculative option for Freeney this offseason.
We have Freeney listed as the No. 49 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
