This season the Indianapolis Colts' stud All-Pro Dwight Freeney had a career-low 5 sacks to go with his 12 total tackles. This was mainly because of his position movement from Defensive End to Outside Linebacker, due to coach Chuck Pagano's 3-4 defense as well as some minor injuries. Well, Freeney is going to be a free agent this offseason, and Indianapolis' local Fox station made a report stating that the team may focus more on revamping their offensive line to protect Andrew Luck as well as adding more offensive weapons. It's hard to imagine a Colts' defense without Dwight Freeney, but it may finally be time for the two to part ways. That naturally brings up the question, would the Patriots be interested in signing the 32 year-old? I personally can't see this happening. The Patriots also run a 3-4 defense and with Chandler Jones showing plenty of potential plus Rob Ninkovich successfully making the transition to DE, there's really no need for Freeney o...

Dwight Freeney not expected back in Indianapolis

According to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com, linebacker Dwight Freeney isn’t expected to re-sign with the Indianapolis Colts.

Dwight Freeney Not Expected To Remain in Indy

Free agent linebacker Dwight Freeney isn't expected to return to the Colts next season. SOURCE: Peter King, Sports Illustrated.Fantasy Spin:Freeney's sack total this season (five) was his lowest since 2007.
