Dwight Freeney To Chargers


Recommended Posts

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers have agreed to terms with Dwight Freeney, formerly of the Colts, on a two-year contract.

33-year-old Freeney recorded 12 tackles and five sacks in the Colts' 3-4 defense last season, but it wasn't a particularly strong fit for his skill set. He was expected to eye a return back to the 4-3, but money talks and the Chargers had a huge need for a pass rusher after losing Melvin Ingram to a torn ACL. Freeney should see significant snaps opposite Jarret Johnson, and the Chargers have already stated that they could tinker their defense to better suit the veteran.

Abe could go to the Seahawks since Clemons is coming off a knee and Irvin got the four game suspension. As someone mentioned, NE is also a possibility, as well as MIA. Either one of those three and we get to play against him at least once. I wouldn't rule out the Aints either since they are in dire need of a pass rusher. He should land somewhere next month.

Great signing with Ingram out. For us, I would sign Seymour and stick with what we have.

Yeah Seymour is really the last piece, Osi and more time for Kroy should be fine for us and if one of the young DE's step up we will be in good shape. We will be alot younger on Defense but we should be alot better. Less second half let downs with younger players that have more stamina.

2 years 13.5 million so almost 7 a year. Abe will probably get about 5 a year now he shouldn't expect any less since Osi got 4 minimum and up to 6 maximum. Thats right in line with both guys that his value was compared too.

This seems craZy. 7 million a year!

That's a tad more than I expected him to get. Any word on the guaranteed $?

Actually it's not as bad as it once looked

Signed a two-year, $8.75 million contract. The deal contains $4.75 million guaranteed -- a $3.25 million signing bonus and Freeney's first-year base salary. Another $4.6 million is available through sack-based incentives. 2013: $1.5 million, 2014: $3.5 million (+ $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses), 2015: Free Agent

It's really just like Osi's almost. So Abe should get a 2 yrs 8 mil deal half guaranteed with sack bonus to reach the maximum like those 2.

Ok, that's more along the lines of what I expected.
