“I have aspirations to play, but the thing is I have to be in the right situation for me. I can't get put in a situation where I'm running away from the ball. I want to run toward the guy with the ball more than I'm running away.”
NFL.com's Kevin Patra points out that Freeney's best opportunity to get onto a roster for his 14th season in the NFL may come after the season has already begun and contracts are no longer guaranteed.
Freeney has been named First-Team All-Pro three times in his career in addition to seven Pro-Bowl selections. He appeared in all 16 games for San Diego last season, earning 3.5 sacks and seven tackles, and is listed by Sports Illustrated's Doug Farrar as the best available free agent at his position.
