The Indianapolis Colts released Dwight Freeney and he is a free agent this offseason. But like Rob Ryan he’s going to be out of work for “like 5 minutes.” It’s an interesting spot to be in, free agency that is, and Dwight Freeney eluded to that during an appearance on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland.

“I would definitely say very interesting. Exciting just to see the possibilities. And change could be good,” Freeney said, via Sports Radio Interviews. It’s definitely unfamiliar territory for me, and unexpected, but you have to roll with the punches.”

But there were some rumors that old teammate Peyton Manning reached out to him and offered him a home in Denver.

“That was more of a friend text: ‘Sorry to hear what happened to you in Indianapolis. Hey, come play with us. We’d love to have you.’ So one of those. I don’t know exactly what’s going to be happening here. This is a new process for me.”

But it could not come cheap as there are a “bunch of teams” interested in him supposedly. We have our Top 5 Teams for Dwight Freeney here.

“After the combine I’ll be sitting down with my agent, because he has been in conversations with a bunch of teams, and we’ll speak about what my options are and who has high interest, who doesn’t, and go from there.”

He could though have his eyes set on a different team, the one he grew up admiring.

“I grew up a Giants fan. I’m an east-coast guy. So if you grew up a Giants fan and you have an opportunity to go play for your team that you grew up loving, obviously. But you know, it depends on if it works for them.”
