Here's the thing, the guy is so athletic and so versatile that I bet you a switch would be quite easy for him.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay can be a little crazy, but donating $75,000 to keep a local fan sports bar open is a solid move in our book.
Chris Polian, son of former Colts GM Bill Polian, has officially been hired by the Jaguars as their new director of pro personnel. The hiring shouldn't be surprising, considering that David Caldwell worked for Bill Polian and Chris Polian in Indianapolis from 1998 to 2007 before moving to Atlanta.

It's proven a tough free agent market for veteran defensive lineman and linebackers, as several either remain unsigned or had to take significant pay cuts to reach new agreements. An example of this has been Indianapolis Colts free agent Dwight Freeney, who has been forced to lower his asking price since the offseason began, according to Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post.
Remember when Dwight Freeney and John Abraham visited Foxborough?
Yeah, that was over a month and a half ago, and neither have found teams. The reason? Despite the fact that both are aging veterans past their prime, they are looking for big pay days.
This hasn't been the best off-season for players looking for that, even a lot of guys in their prime have had to settle for...
Earlier this offseason, free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney was looking for $8 million per year.
