Broncos turn to chasing Freeney

08:04 AM ET 03.25 | At the very least, Dwight Freeney would come with some name recognition and more than a passing familiarity with sacking quarterbacks. Look at it this way, Broncos fans: Dwight Freeney has 44 more sacks than Elvis Dumervil. And so it goes with life in the NFL. You win some. You lose some. Maybe you lose a few more to the Baltimore Ravens than you'd like. ... [Robert Ayers] may well become the Broncos' right defensive end on running downs, but they will try to sign Freeney, a former Indianapolis Colts star and Peyton Manning teammate. Manning, now the Broncos' starting quarterback, turned 37 on Sunday. Losing Dumervil to the Ravens may not have been among Manning's birthday wishes, but Freeney could be a nice consolation gift.

Unless he's willing to sign for cheap, I would stay away from him. He's getting up in age and beginning his decline. He's also a one-dimensional player who can't play the run.

wiseup: The Broncos has Robert Alyres for run defense and bring Freeney in in passing situations.

Dumbervil wasn't that great against the run either.

Saints should be attempting to sign Frenney. An older Freeney is much better than a younger Sean Ellis who can't stop the run or rush the passer. Ellis is not the same position but my point is Sean Ellis has not contributed much since they signed him out of the great USC.
Hope the Saints do not sign another USC player for some time because they have all been over rated and not much when faced with NFL talent.
The way the Saints are going in free agency I can smell the defense and it does not smell good. The offense will have to score a least 27 points to just keep Saints in the game.
