Quote:
"There are a couple other places Freeney has spotlighted as places he'd like to go," Rapoport said. "Denver is one. The Lions, who still need a pass-rusher, they're another. The Dolphins they're another."


Quote:
Rapoport suggests Freeney is looking for more than Osi Umenyiora signed for on Thursday. That contract is valued at two-years, $8.5 million, with an additional $3.5 million available via performances bonuses.


I don't know money wise if that could work out at all.

I think he is asking $6 mil a year?

Too much.

Id probably only want to do around half that.

I dont see this happening. He simply lists us because we have the need. Bottom line is he will probably go wherever pays him the most, which certainly wont be us.

Year, 6 per is too much. Maybe 3 or 4 but not 6, and even then 3/4 is pushing it and would cause us to have no cap room basically forcing us to cut or extend some players.

I don't believe he did. Only way it happens is a Stafford extension.

Freeney is probably to expensive for us at this current time imo. Not sure if a Stafford extension is going to be done this off season.
