According to ProFootballWeekly.com, with Colts outside linebacker Dwight Freeney struggling to transition to a 3-4 defense, he’ll likely be done in Indianapolis after this year.
“For a Colts defense that has not made enough big plays and consistently fails to get to the quarterback, we hear the pressure is increasing on OLB Dwight Freeney, who, in a contract year, has been a complete nonfactor as he transitions to a new position. In his defense, Freeney suffered a high ankle sprain early in Week One and missed the next two games. However, we hear Freeney has come to his own defense too often, repeatedly referencing his injured ankle when asked about his lack of production. We hear it would be a major surprise if Freeney is back with the Colts next season,” wrote PFW.
Freeney is not a good fit as an outside linebacker. He needs to sign with a team that runs a 4-3 defense so he can go back to being a defensive end.
