McCormick adds that these teams could also be targeting Osi Umenyiora as well.
Freeney, 33, could provide a decent pass rush at a reasonable cost for the Broncos, but their interest figures to be determined by what happens with DE Elvis Dumervil. Denver has reportedly asked him to take a pay cut from the $12 million he’s set to make for the 2013 season.
As for Atlanta, they could really use a reasonably priced pass rusher now that they’ve parted ways with John Abraham. Freeney is only slightly younger than Abraham, so I’m sure his asking price will be a huge factor in regards to their overall level of interest.
