On Monday, after 16 seasons of chasing quarterbacks and making offensive linemen look silly, former Indianapolis Colts star Dwight Freeney returned to his adopted hometown to sign a one-day contract to retire with the Colts.
Defensive end Dwight Freeney will retire as a member of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday. Freeney was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a three-time first-team All-Pro and played in three Super Bowls while winning one title with the Colts following the 2006 season.
The Detroit Lions have added Dwight Freeney off waivers from Seattle. Detroit acquired the 37-year-old Freeney a day before hosting the Minnesota Vikings in a possibly pivotal game for the NFC North title. The Lions need help at defensive end in part because Ezekiel Ansah is questionable with a back injury that has kept him out of the last two games. The Seahawks unexpectedly waived Freeney on Tuesday after he had three sacks in four games for them this season.
Signing Dwight Freeney not only gives the Seahawks some immediate pass rush help but also likely increases their presence in the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday.
Dwight Freeney was added by the Seattle Seahawks to add depth on the defensive line. He’s not the All-Pro he once was, but Freeney’s addition could be a coup for Seattle if he can provide a boost to the Seahawks pass rush. Freeney was signed after Cliff Avril was placed on injured reserve with a neck injury.
Veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney is back in the NFL after agreeing to a deal to join the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks announced the agreement after bringing Freeney in for a visit. The 37-year-old has been without a job after spending last season with Atlanta. He’ll be used as a pass rusher with Seattle after the loss of Cliff Avril to a neck injury.
