But Broncos's pass rush not an area of need
|The Indianapolis Colts are done with Dwight Freeney, but it doesn't appear the defensive end will lack for suitors when he hits the open market. Freeney said Wednesday that former Colts teammate Peyton Manning already has been recruiting him to join the Denver Broncos. "He sent me a text and he just said, 'Hey man, don't worry, come play with me in Denver,' " Freeney told "PFT Live." "I don't know how serious it was but, you know, it's good to hear some of your former teammates still follow you, they care and they want to see you succeed." Freeney expressed doubt that Denver has a spot for him with defensive end Elvis Dumervil and linebacker Von Miller entrenched. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Freeney shouldn't be a serious consideration for those in IDP leagues. His tackle totals are always low and at 33, he might lack the burst he had in his more youthful days that saw him achieve double-digit sack totals in seven of his first nine seasons in the league.
