Report: Dwight Freeney keeps lowering asking price
Pass rusher Dwight Freeney is facing a hard reality on the open market. As a result, the Colts' all-time sack leader continues to lower his salary demands. He now wants a deal similar to the two-year, $8.5 million contract signed by Osi Umenyiora, according to a new report.
Dwight Freeney’s asking price continues to fall.
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.
The Broncos ended up signing former Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips, and seem prepared to start Derek Wolfe and Robert Ayers at defensive end.
