INDIANAPOLIS – Dwight Freeney joined the Colts as the 11th overall pick in the 2002 draft, and the impact of his career matched that from totals of his first rookie start when he forced three fumbles and had a sack.
Freeney, the club’s all-time sack leader (107.5), will not be issued a contract offer Colts, and he is free to pursue another direction in his career when the free agency period opens on March 12.
“Few people have meant as much to the success of the Indianapolis Colts as Dwight Freeney,” said Owner and CEO Jim Irsay. “He has been a dominant player, which is all the more impressive considering his size for his position, and he has won a lot of games for this franchise. Dwight was an artist, a joy to watch, and the dedication he put toward his craft was a rare quality. We will miss him, but look forward to his future induction into the Hall of Fame and Colts Ring of Honor.”
Freeney, a seven-time Pro Bowler, had seven of the 17 double-digit sack seasons in club history. He had 13.0 sacks in his rookie season, a sign of things to come. His other seasons with 10-plus sacks were in 2003 (11.0), 2004 (16.0), 2005 (11.0), 2008 (10.5), 2009 (13.5) and 2010 (10.0). READ MORE ...
