Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Out for Thursday's preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeney (back) will not play in Thursday's preseason tilt with Miami, AJC.com reports.

The veteran pass rusher has been dealing with a back strain that doesn't appear to be serious. With that in mind, coach Dan Quinn noted that Freeney's absence stems from precautionary measures. Brought in to boost the team's lackluster pass rush, Freeney is expected suit up for Atlanta's final preseason game.

Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Signing with Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeney is signing with the Falcons, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

The 36-year-old Freeney proved he had some juice left last season, recording eight sacks in 11 games for the Cardinals despite working in a part-time role on obvious passing downs. While the Falcons probably won't expect similar production, Freeney should at least provide a small boost to a pass rush that had an NFL-low 19 sacks last season.

Dwight Freeney: Scheduled to workout with Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Freeney is scheduled to work out with the Bengals, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

The veteran pass rusher and longtime Colt said earlier in the offseason that he would like to play in 2016 as long as he finds "the right situation." That situation could emerge in Cincinnati after the team lost Wallace Gilberry in free agency, leaving a lack of depth at defensive end. Freeney recorded eight sacks and three forced fumbles in 11 games with the Cardinals last season.

Dwight Freeney: Will play again in 'right situation'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dwight Freeney will play in 2016 as long as he finds "the right situation," Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

When the Cardinals called five games into last season, Freeney was about a week away from retirement, but another year of wear and tear may be in the offing. If he returns to Arizona (or similarly joins another contender), his snap count will likely be contained in order to ensure the health of the 36-year-old pass rusher. Receiving 24.4 percent of the defensive snaps last season, he responded with eight sacks among nine tackles and three forced fumbles, to which he added another sack in the postseason.

Cardinals' Dwight Freeney: Tallies another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dwight Freeney (knee) tallied another sack during Sunday's defeat to the Seahawks.

Upon his arrival in Week 6, Freeney has bolstered the Cardinals' pass rush, notching eight sacks among nine tackles in 11 games. He was again contained to just 21 of the 72 defensive snaps in the season finale, which lines up with his usage to date in a situational role.
