Earlier this offseason, free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney was looking for $8 million per year.  Now that Freeney is still a free agent, it sounds like he’s willing to accept something similar to the two-year, $8.5 million contract Osi Umenyiora received from the Falcons.

It will be interesting to see if the Broncos are able to work something out with Freeney. Need NFL Tickets?
