Who had the best free agent signing?

Chicago Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman had some harsh words for his former Colts teammate Coby Fleener on Sunday night.

Last week, during a conference call announcing his signing with the Saints, Fleener described some Colts players as merely “along for the ride” late last season, when Indianapolis missed the playoffs.

Freeman, though not explicitly named by Fleener, took the comment personally.

“That s— pisses me off,” Freeman told over text message. “And he must've been looking in the mirror when he did the interview. I despise guys like that. That's what little girls do, talk about you when you're not around. I'm a grown man. If I see something I don't like, I'm going to go have a face-to-face [conversation] with that player/players and we are going to get an understanding! I feel like I had a hand in building what's over there (in Indianapolis), so he's s— on me, too. That's a b— move.”

Report: Chris Long to visit Patriots on Monday

Fleener, a second-round pick of the Colts in 2012, signed a five-year deal with the Saints. Freeman signed a three-year deal with the Bears.
