Freeney Working Up 2010 Appetite

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wrote a story yesterday discussing the Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney’s early appetite for rookie left tackles in 2010.

I’m licking my chops,” Freeney told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.  “When you have a rookie offensive tackle, I can’t wait.  Because for an offensive tackle, you’re not good until you’re in like your eighth year.  You’ve got to get beat up for a while to learn what to do and what not to.  It’s when you’re about in your fifth through 10th years as an offensive tackle that you’re in your prime.

“All these rookies coming out?  They don’t know anything,” Freeney said.  “I can’t wait.”

It’s great to see Colts veterans already focused on playing dominant football while they are still nearly a month away from training camp.
