    It is most likely heavily prorated, now there will be the signing of Gonzo, Ugoh and Hughes.
    "Freeney will receive $37.72 million over the first three years of the contract. In doing the deal, the Colts will save $3.68 million of salary-cap room that they can use to keep other players whose contracts are expiring. The Colts had $3.4 million of cap room before reaching agreement with Freeney."

    Thats from ESPN.com, like I said this contract is going to haunt them.

      what are you haters talking about? Freeney is one of the most game-changing defenders in the game.

        Ah thanks for the specifics.

        I am still confident in Freeney, he did have an off year last year (due to the horrible run-D amongst other injuries) but if he can revert to 2005 form, I'll definitely like this deal.

        Now it's rookie time.
        Is that a rash?

          I thought thats what the spin move was for, the inside move. Besides, if he abandons his gap against a running QB it leaves an open lane for the qb to run through.

          Freeney is not only a one dimension player, but he is a one dimensional pass rusher when compared to other elite DE's Peppers, Strahan, Smith, Taylor all have great inside moves to compliment an edge rush. Give me DE like Peppers who from time to time gets a tackle and a guard blocking him over a tackle and te or rb combo.

            Thats why pass rushers like merriman who have more than a spin...
            ...and more than one syringes of HGH...

            Anyway, good move for both parties. You can talk about the money all you want, but the Colts need Dwight Freeney. And if Freeney hit the FA market this year, he would have likely gotten a similar contract. Plus, like someone said, the contract is probably hevily backloaded. So in four or five years when he's declining, he'll have to restructure or be cut.

              Since when has he been a game changer, he's been criticzed for not making the sacks/big plays when Indy was down

                  Freeney seems more of a pilates kinda guy.

                  Shwas referring to Merriman with the HGH comment.

                    dwight freeney has gotten a majority of his sacks on turf (at home), he's disappeared in the road games...and RB's don't shy away from his side, they know that he over pursues a majority of the time...just another straw that will eventually break the camel's back...

                    the colts, in a few years, will be one of the worst cap disasters in recent years...

                      i know i was just saying i guess freeney only has one if merriman has more haha... but ya if i do recall.. freeney gets critized because he only makes sacks when they are ahead and the other team is passing more

                        I think at this point Freeney is a bit overrated. He's been overpaid. Let's hope he shows some reason to warrant all that money because i like Dwight and would hate to see him have another sorry season.

                          I agree, Ive watched a lot of colts games, and Freeney is really overratted. Im not saying hes bad, But a lot of analysts try to make him sound like hes the best defensive end in the nfl as of right now (ahem, espn, cough). its a good signing for the colts, however, he is getting way too much if you ask me.

                            That's one strong camel, since I've been hearing this "window of oppurtunity is closing" and "cap hell is coming" crap since the first division title. Considering he helped to invent the cap, I'd think Bill Polian would know a thing or two about it, like how to work with it.


                            The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                            If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                              I think i posted an article a while back from rotoworld about how freeney wanted a 30 million signing bonus. I never thought he would actually get it though. But in today's FA, you pretty much have to overpay.
