Freeney Prices Himself Into Market

68

Dwight Freeney has been humbled. When the Denver Broncos began negotiations with the free agent defensive end last month, Freeney came in wanting $8 million for his services. Denver negotiated him closer to $6 million and then eventually pulled the plug. Known to the public at the time is that they were also talking to veteran defensive end John Abraham as well (who wanted $12 million plus and felt his floor (which he was over performing) was $5 million). Unbeknownst to the public at the time was the fact Shaun Phillips was also negotiating with Denver. As we are all well aware Phillips has signed with the Broncos (for $1 million) and Freeney's price has reportedly gone down to something, 'similar to Osi Umenyiora's deal'. Umenyiora is getting $4.5 million per season, which is bargain basement compared to where Freeney started. So, it appears as if this story is not over yet. The Broncos could loop back in and it appears that Freeney is willing to play ball. Now, is there any room for him?
