      I would pay him $900,000 for that display he had last season. This guy's acting like he's the best in the game. He's good but really a glorified Tampa 2 D End. It would be a mistake by him and a team that signed him because he has to live up the expectations of the contract. It would be similar to the A-Rod situation. He better have 20 plus sacks every year.

          It's called negotiation. You ask for 30 m hoping to get 22 m.

            That is an insane amount of money for a DE

              The only one I think is worth that is Julius Peppers. Maybe Mario Williams down the line, if he develops more consistency.

                  Why would he be released? The Colts have franchise tagged him for 2007, they are willing to pay him the estimated amount for the upcoming season.

                  I wouldn't be surprised if they franchise tagged him again in 08 for a possible trade, ala the Jets and John Abraham, if both sides can't come to terms on an extension.

                    He wont even get over 20 mil as a signing bonus. Polian will only go as high as maybe 6 or 7 mil per year with a 15 mil signing bonus. If he doesnt want that, we will gladly trade him for either a 1st or 2nd round pick.

                      My thoughts exactly. I would be exstatic if they could keep him one more year and then trade him for a mid 1st rounder.

                        I don't know how much value he would get through a trade next year, considering this draft class' depth at de and next year's possible top end talent, not to mention that he will be asking for all that money.

                          No they wouldn't. Next year, Sanders and Clark are both up, so it'd be nice to be able to protect one of those two, plus Freeney would end up making more than Peyton Manning in 3 years if he was franchised every year. They'd be better off if they can get him to agree to a longer version of something similar to Richard Seymour's deal.

                              Or perhaps being the only player that needed to be accounted for on defense for most of the regular season and the fact that the Colts had 121 more running plays run against them in 2006 as opposed to 2005 combined to make his numbers fall off a bit.

                                Well, I don't agree with you completely, you're right about Freeney being one of the few bright spots in the Colts' defense, but there is also Bob Sanders, Cato June (although he's outta indy now) and Robert Mathis, all players who are dangerous. I'm not saying Freeney doesn't get a lot of attention, but I don't agree he's the only guy they need to take into account.

                                And yes, the Colts got a lot more run plays called against them, but you'd think that even then, a guy who's asking for 9 million bucks a year would at least get double-digit sacks every year, even when gameplanned against and even when there aren't a huge amount of pass plays called against his team.
