Lions' Dwight Freeney: Ready for Lions debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney (not injury related) was a full participant in Friday's practice.

The Lions claimed Freeney off waivers last week but didn't choose to play him for the Week 12 game against the Vikings. However, after practicing in full fashion both Thursday and Friday, the legendary sack master seems ready to make his Lions debut Sunday against the Ravens.

Lions' Dwight Freeney: Will not play versus Vikings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney will not play in Thursday's game against the Vikings, Dave Birkett of The Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions claimed Freeney off waivers Wednesday after he was waived by the Seahawks, so it isn't too surprising to see that he'll be inactive for at least one week while he adjusts to being with his new team. Freeney is expected to be used as a depth option and situational pass rusher on the Lions' defensive line once he is officially made active.

Lions' Dwight Freeney: Heading to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions claimed Freeney off waivers Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Freeney will be reunited in Detroit with head coach Jim Caldwell, who coached the defensive end in Indianapolis from 2009 to 2011. The 37-year-old, who was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday after logging three sacks in four games, will provide Detroit with extra depth at end while Ezekiel Ansah (back) works his way back to form.

Dwight Freeney: Waived by Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney was waived by Seattle on Tuesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Freeney signed with Seattle a month ago and has played four games with the team. His release comes as a bit of a surprise as the veteran defensive end tallied 3.0 sacks in his short stint with the Seahawks. His release could lead to some added snaps for Branden Jackson and Dion Jordan. Freeney will be free to sign with any team if he clears waivers.

Seahawks' Dwight Freeney: Tallies two sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney recorded a pair of sacks in Sunday's 17-14 loss to the Redskins.

Freeney now has 2.5 sacks in two games since joining the Seahawks, which account for his only tackles thus far. The veteran defensive end played 25 of 63 snaps Sunday, an allotment that he'll likely continue seeing while primarily being deployed in passing situations.
