Recommended Posts

Freeney was not "released" since hes set to be a FA. They just pretty much told him they aren't going to resign him. Collie on the other hand was released.

Freeney must indeed be the square peg....Austin is just a true shame for such a talented guy decimated by injuries.  Two of my favorite Colts of all time.....a sad day for the old linebacker!!!

Sad news, but neither guy surprises me. They were both fun and exciting to watch! As a former DE, Freeney was an idol of mine in high school... Thank you both from the bottom of my heart!

Confused. What's the whole point of releasing them if they are set to become FA's anyway?

Exactly....still sad....if confirmed......why is it news..why tweet it?

Collie was signed to a 4 yr. contract in 2009, so he is a FA too. So, both of them were bid adieu without re-signing.

Bleacher Report also cited the Kravitz tweet. Not released, but told they wouldn't be signed.

Right call on both players......Freeney was a great player, but at his age and given the current defensive system isn't worth what he's gonna want to be paid.

 

Hopefully he can go someplace else and have a nice end to his career.

Collie was Great over the middle.

Larry Foote that was some Forearm smash followed by the knee to the head. No penalty, No Fine.

That was $1.166 Million a tackle OR $2.8 Million a sack. And they still had me worried. TY Jim & Grigs.

Well thanks Austin for being an inspiration to me. And Dwight hope you can finish strong as i don't think you will go to another SB

I feel that guys like Bob Sanders and Austin who contributed so much...only to have careers shortened deserve the love too.....

 

Poor old Steve Emtman would have been a beast too....not sure on Trev Alberts...:)

I find it hard to believe Freeney was "Very surprised."

This was coming all year IMO.

May have come LAST year if the dead hit was not enormous....still sick.....loved 93.....:(

Such sad news for Austin Collie, but that move is for the best. I would rather see the man walk away than be carried off the field again. Freeney was a great player for a lot of years.

Wound up not being about the money. I thought it was all offseason, but I was wrong. The dead cap hit would have been $5m. We carried him for $19m. I still think it was a mistake.
