The San Diego Chargers have agreed to terms with free-agent DE Dwight Freeney on a two-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Freeney can still get after the passer, and in San Diego he'll have a couple opportunities to hit former teammate Peyton Manning.

Free-agent DE Dwight Freeney (Colts) is not considering retirement despite tweets that indicated he was considering the option, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It's been somewhat of a sobering offseason for the 33-year Freeney, who was cut loose by the Colts -- the only franchise he's ever played for -- and then has seen other teams balk at his contract demands. The need for pass rushers hasn't waned though, and look for Freeney to latch on as a start-of-training camp addition by striking a reasonable 1-year deal.

The Tennessee Titans could meet with free-agent DE Dwight Freeney (Colts) at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: With Denver -- long rumored to be a destination for Freeney -- signing LB/DE Shaun Phillips on the third day of the draft, the former-Colt has been left to explore other options, and one of them is the Titans, a former division rival.

Free agent DE Dwight Freeney may not sign a contract until training camp starts, or possibly even after.
Huddle Up: With the Broncos, Patriots, Saints and now, reportedly, the Steelers showing interest, the ex-Colt appears content to let a mini-bidding war develop.

The Denver Broncos will turn their attention to free-agent DE Dwight Freeney (Colts) after losing DL Elvis Dumervil to the Baltimore Ravens. If they cannot sign Freeney, they will look to veteran free-agent DE John Abraham (Falcons).
Huddle Up: Neither player is as young or has been as productive recently as Dumervil, but there will be sack opportunities available playing opposite OLB Von Miller.

The Denver Broncos likely would be interested in Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE Dwight Freeney if DE Elvis Dumervil does not agree to a restructured contract.
Huddle Up: Freeney has been linked with the Broncos and former teammate Peyton Manning since his release in Indy, and while he's 4 years older than Dumervil and had 6 fewer sacks last season, his pricetag also would be noticeably more affordable ($5 mil to $12 mil).

The Atlanta Falcons could potentially be a good fit for Indianapolis Colts impending free-agent DE/LB Dwight Freeney because they are a 4-3 turf team that plays indoors.
Huddle Up: It would be an even better match if, as rumored, the Falcons part ways DE John Abraham in a cost-cutting move.

The Indianapolis Colts are not expected to re-sign impending free-agent LB Dwight Freeney because he really does not fit the team's 3-4 defensive alignment and he likely will receive interest from teams looking for a defensive end for a 4-3 defensive alignment.
Huddle Up: Freeney, entering his 12th season, had only 11 total tackles and 4 sacks in 2012 -- his lowest figures in years -- and he'll be better off as situational pass rusher on a new team with the Colts continuing their youth movement.

Indianapolis Colts LB Dwight Freeney (ankle), C Samson Satele (knee) and RB Mewelde Moore (ankle), who are all listed as questionable for Week 5, are all expected to play this week. Freeney may not play the full game, though, and he'll be used as a situational rusher.
Huddle Up: Whether it's part-time or whatever time, Freeney will be of use to a Indy pass rush which has recorded only 7 sacks so far. That'll be extra important this week with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming to town.

Indianapolis Colts DE Dwight Freeney (ankle) has a sprained ankle and is considered day to day. Freeney will see a specialist.
Huddle Up: The Colts have the potential to be one of the worst defenses in the league. Losing one of their top players and veteran leaders for any amount of time only puts them closer to that ugly reality.
