Emerging market for Freeney?

Nate Dunlevy points out that the injury to Terrell Suggs creates an opening in Baltimore for Dwight Freeney. Nate believes Freeney is headed elsewhere before the season begins:

Among the possible trade options open to the Ravens is Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney. Freeney has been repeatedly linked to trade rumors, and I believe he will be moved before the close of the preseason.

If the Colts can get anything of value for Freeney I believe they’ll move him. Otherwise I see the team letting him play out his contract and taking the compensatory pick next year. There’s little to be gained from a release as the $14 million they’d have in cap space wouldn’t help–there’s no one left to sign that would improve this roster dramatically.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
