Report: Dwight Freeney keeps lowering asking price

The Colts’ all-time sack leader reportedly started out asking for $8 million a year in free agency from the Broncos, who needed to replace <player idref=. “That number got closer to $6 million as the talks went on, but the Broncos moved on at that point,” the Denver Post reported.
