Tell me that Gildon, Porter, Haggans, Lloyd, Greene, Harrison, Woodley have ever been chasing tight ends or slot receivers all over the field.

Dwight Freeney is a good enough athlete to take a 3-5 step and drive back into a hook/curl zone.
No.

Ummm...cause the organization sucks from top to bottom. They don't know how to use their talent. Plain and simple. But I do stand corrected. Colbert is making fucking up draft picks look pretty easy in the past four years.

Dwight Freeney at top of Denver Broncos' wish list

By Chris Wesseling
Around the League Writer
Published: March 24, 2013

The Denver Broncos had pass rushers Dwight Freeney and John Abraham in town last Thursday as a fallback plan in case Elvis Dumervil flew the coop.

Now that Dumervil has chosen the Baltimore Ravens, the Broncos are turning their attention back to the two aging veterans.

A source close to the situation told NFL Network's Michelle Beisner on Sunday that the Broncos are "making a hard push" for Freeney.

Freeney -- who is represented by Dumervil's agent, Tom Condon -- is the Broncos' first choice, according to The Denver Post's Mike Klis. In a bizarre twist, Klis had reported just moments before on Twitter that the Broncos are "expected to focus" on Abraham, with Freeney as a fallback option.

While Abraham has been more productive over the past three years, Freeney is two years younger and might have an "in" with Peyton Manning, his former longtime Indianapolis Colts teammate.

foiled again


NFL.com reports free agent Dwight Freeney is seeking $6 million per season.

Makes sense, with Dumervil's range at $26M-$35M over 5.

Dwight Freeney wants richer deal than Osi Umenyiora

By Dan Hanzus
Around the League Writer
Published: March 28, 2013

Osi Umenyiora added some more context to the pass-rusher market Thursday when he officially signed a two-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.

Dwight Freeney took note. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport said Thursday on "NFL Total Access" that Freeney wants more than Umenyiora's $8.5 million base earnings. And as NFL Network's Michelle Beisner reported earlier, Freeney's willing to wait to get the deal he wants.

The Denver Broncos have been the team most closely linked to Freeney. The veteran outside linebacker also has spotlighted the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins as potential destinations. The Dolphins ($15.7 million) have the most salary-cap space to play with, followed by the Broncos ($8.8M) and Lions ($7.3M).

Rapoport says Freeney is open to waiting until after the draft when teams can reassess roster needs. Another possible window is training camp, when teams must react to injuries.

It's an interesting strategy by Freeney, but it's a gamble he must feel comfortable taking.

Replaces Foote? Dwight Freeney is no MLB. He's an edge rusher much better fitted to playing DE in a 4-3 than OLB in a 3-4 as many others have already stated. We need to inject some youth into this team and get some younger players we've drafted some experience so we can see what we have in them. The only free agent I was interested in was Dumervil to play OLB but with our salary cap situation I knew that wasn't going to happen. Right now the salary cap situation dictates that we go to the draft to fill needs.
