    Cardinals' Dwight Freeney: Active Sunday

    Cardinals' Dwight Freeney: Limited Wednesday

    Freeney (finger) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Freeney was inked on Oct. 12 to act as a situational pass rusher, but was blanked in his first game with the Cardinals, despite picking up 19 snaps. That number increased slightly Monday against the Ravens, and he wreaked havoc upon Joe Flacco, notching two quarterback hits and one sack among his two tackles (one solo). As his familiarity grows with the schemes of defensive coordinator James Bettcher, Freeney is a great bet to keep up the pressure on a weekly basis.

    Cardinals' Dwight Freeney: Signing with Cardinals

    Freeney will sign a one-year contract with the Cardinals, NFL.com reports. Freeney played 16 games for the Chargers last season, compiling 10 tackles and 3.5 sacks in a reduced role. However, at 35 years old, Freeney's 111.5 career sacks rank among the active leaders in the league, and he's familiar with Cardinals coach Bruce Arians from their days with the Colts. While Freeney will likely occupy a specialist role, his presence could bolster an Arizona defense that has forced 13 turnovers already this season.

    Chargers' Dwight Freeney to consider retirement at year's end

    Chargers outside linebacker Dwight Freeney, who is in his 13th NFL season, could decide to hang it up for good after this season. Freeney told U-T San Diego he considered retiring at the end of last season when he was put on IR with a torn quad and he will do some serious evaluating this coming offseason. "I think after Year 10, I started evaluating where I'm at at the end of the year," Freeney said. "The thing is, when you're in the middle of the year, you've got too much emotion. You've got too much clouding those decisions. That's a big deal. That's a big, big decision that you're going to make that's going to affect so many people, the team, your family, your legacy. I try to leave that decision, no matter how much I go up and down or feel like, 'Yeah, I do,' or, 'No, I don't.' At the end of the year, I sit back, and I'll really think about it." Freeney has eight tackles this year including two sacks. He is currently 21st on the all-time sack list with 110, one behind his old teammate Robert Mathis.
