Dwight Freeney is a free agent this offseason and I wouldn’t normally think that he is a fit for the roster. We do need a pass rusher, but Freeney doesn’t really fit the 3-4 scheme.
There is a new General Manager in town and he may have different thoughts on the situation. Tom Telesco was hired from the Indianapolis Colts and I am sure he has been a big fan of Freeney. Would he want to bring the “linebacker” out to San Diego as a pass rusher?
Who knows what capacity John Pagano would use him in, but Shaun Phillips is a free agent and probably won’t be re-signed. He could be a veteran to be used with Melvin Ingram and Jarret Johnson on the outside. Freeney still can get after the quarterback a little even though he is getting up there in years.
Who knows? It’s Tommy Telesco’s show now and he could want to bring over some familiar faces.
