NFL Injury Report:
The Denver Broncos are now targeting pass rusher Dwight
Freeney since free agent Elvis Dumervil signed with the Baltimore Ravens. Talks
haven’t progressed much recently, and while they’re not dead they are moving at
a slower pace, according to Michelle Beisner of NFL Network.
Beisner notes that Freeney is seeking a contract that pays
him $6 million per year, and he’s willing to wait for the deal. Denver may be
hesitant to meet these demands, as the base contract Dumervil signed with the Ravens
was for $5.2 million per year, and he’s viewed as the superior player to
Freeney struggled with the Indianapolis Colts’ switch to a
3-4 defense. However – with the Broncos – he would be able to move back to a
pass-rushing end position, rather than suiting up as a linebacker.
Beyond Freeney, the Broncos have also been tied to Atlanta
Falcons free agent defensive end John Abraham. He’s viewed as the team’s backup
plan if they are unable to reach an agreement with Freeney, so it will be
interesting to see if they make contact with him sooner or later.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via Evan Silva, the Miami Dolphins have some interest in free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney.
Schefter didn’t elaborate, but the Fins could provide competition for the Broncos, who want Freeney to help replace Elvis Dumervil. Freeney is 33 years old and coming off a five-sack season. Because Von Miller and Cameron Wake generally play the...
