Defensive end Dwight Freeney will be the one who truly dictates how much the Colts can get for him in the trade market. The Colts are reportedly fielding offers for the seven-time Pro Bowler who turned 32 last month, but Freeney is in complete control of the entire situation. Freeney is due $14.035 million in base salary in the final year of his contract in 2012, and that's far...
The Colts have recently come out and said that they are exploring trades for Dwight Freeney. Simply put, the Colts are clearing house. Freeney has one year left on his deal and is owed $19 million. Throw Freeney’s age (32) into the equation and I believe he could be had for a 4th round pick. Now if you gave me the option of Freeney or Mario Williams, I’d pick Mario every time...

Adam Schefter reported on Twitter less than an hour ago that the Colts were taking calls for All Pro Defensive End Dwight Freeney. Freeney has 102.5 career sacks at this point, but still has a lot in his tank. The way Freeney plays, I would guess you could pencil him in for 30 sacks [...]
It was an eventful week of tearful goodbyes and bounty hysteria. The Colts bid farewell to Pey-Pey. Then they put Dwight Freeney on the trading block, and there might be one or two Indy fans who can ignore their Peyton grief long enough to be upset about that. As for the rest us, we’re just glad to have pushed through the most miserable part of the sports calendar with our sanity...
