San Diego Chargers linebacker Dwight Freeney told XTRA Sports 1360 in San Diego that he thought about hitting Peyton Manning many times during their time in Indianapolis together.
“It would definitely be great to get after him,” Freeney said, via ProFootballTalk.com. “He’s a great competitor, I’m a great competitor. How many times have I envisioned hitting him during practice, when he had that five-yard halo around him and you couldn’t go in that circle? Millions of times. So it would be fun to get after him a little bit.”
Now that Freeney and Manning are in the same division, Dwight will have two games a year to get after Peyton.
