Found April 23, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

Given the fact that Indianapolis is transitioning to a 3-4 defense and that veteran All-Pro defensive end Dwight Freeney may not necessarily fit the new scheme in Indy, Sports Illustrated reporter Peter King speculates that Freeney may want to be traded on draft day.

Whatever the case may be, Freeney has served the Colts very, very well over his illustrious, Hall of Fame caliber career. In ten years with the Colts, he has amassed 102.5 sacks, 1 safety, 14 passes defensed, and 43 forced fumbles.  Drafted out of Syracuse as the 11th overall pick in the 2002 draft, Freeney has spent his entire career in Indy.

There will probably never be a 'closing of the book' on Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, but given that the Andrew Luck era will officially begin on Thursday night, now is as good a time as any for one more look at the decision to let Manning walk.

Obviously Tom Heckert does, as he blatantly told the Cleveland press this week that he hasn’t talked to King in years. Be that as it may, King was talking about the 2012 NFL draft and the Browns’...
