Dwight Freeney Lowers His Asking Price
According to Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post, former Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney has lowered his asking price significantly the longer hes been unemployed, going from an initial request for $8 million per year to nearly half that. Freeney apparently has told other teams hed take a deal resembling Osi Umenyioras two-year, $8.5 million deal with the Falcons.
The Broncos have apparently moved on, after signing the more versatile Shaun Phillips this weekend.
Freeney should still be able to help someone as a third-down pass-rusher, but its clearly not as valuable a commodity as he thought it was a few months ago.
