Freeney not a lock to sign with the Broncos?

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Freeney wants things on his terms.

It seemed like when Elvis Dumervil signed with the Ravens, that the Broncos would sign his replacement rather soon. Not so fast, according to NFL Networks Michelle Beisner the Broncos have made a hard push for Dwight Freeney, but Freeney wants things to go on his terms.

Freeney is asking for an annually salary of 6 million dollars and isn't in much of a rush to get things done. According to Beisner...

Freeney is looking for an annual salary of $6 million. He's also in no rush to get a deal done. Beisner was told it wouldn't be surprising if a deal wasn't completed until training camp or after.

Lets be honest, I doubt Dwight Freeney will be making 6 million annually. He's 33 and coming off a poor season with the colts. Also Cliff Avril who is younger and a better DE at this point and time signed a 2 year deal that averages 6.5 million annually.

The deal is not dead, but at this time it seems like things have slowed. Also, John Abraham appears to be out as an option for the Broncos. Beisner on NFL Networks Total Access said that the Broncos are down on Abraham because of "Age, injury concerns among other things". So we can cross him off the list for the Broncos.

The Broncos are facing some competition for Dwight Freeneys services it appears. According to Adam Schefter on NFL Live, the Dolphins have some interest in signing the former Colts pass rusher. So we'll see how this all plays out.
