Trade a 6th for Dwight Freeney?

    According to's Peter King, the Colts "would love to get a good pick" for RE Dwight Freeney.
    As King notes, however, Wednesday's Asante Samuel trade for a seventh-round pick sort of set the market for aging vets with monster base salaries. Freeney's base salary of $14.035 million is even greater than Samuel's. King seems to indicate that he doesn't expect Indianapolis to trade Freeney this weekend.

    Ok so its an in division trade. So that's tough, but if we trade a late round pick that gives us some serious wiggle room for the first 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    We can just focus on DT,S,CB,LB for Defense.

    All depends what his contract is like and if he would be willing to redo it.

    $14M is WAYYYY too high. Let their cap be depleted, not ours.

    We do need a good pass rusher, but Freeney is not an every down player, or at least shouldn't be. He benefitted from having a big lead throughout most of his career, so he can pass rush 70 percent of the time. (made up statistic)

    He's aged, past his prime, a pass rush specialist, a liability in the run game, expensive, and he'd likely take more that a 6th to get here. Not looking good.

    But he is one heck of a pass rusher, and expendable for the Colts now.

    As much as it pains me, we made a mistake letting Babin and KVB go.
    We don't have one good pass rusher from the DE position. Hopefully Wimbley can be.

    I doubt the Colts would trade him to a division rival.
