Dwight Freeney the Colts New $72 Million Man

ESPN - Grateful Freeney signs $72 million deal with Colts - NFL

Hard to say hes worth this with his run stopping deficencies, but the market is insane right now.

Wow, it's no surprise he's getting this kind of money but it's still a shock to see the figure $72M in print.

$30M signing bonus!

I just choked on my soda.

Didn't Carter get half that?

Freeney's perfect for the style of ball the colts play though.

By the 3rd year of this deal, he and Peyton will be eating 40% of that team's cap room.

40%! On two players.

Well you figure they got a ring out of the deal so far. And they have a solid coaching staff, so who knows, maybe they've figured out a new way to build a championship franchise.

Don't know about that. I mean, who's really worth 72MM anyway? The NFLs pay system and ours are in two different orbits.

Re: Dwight Freeney the Colts New $72 Million Man

I can only imagine what kind of a contract Julius Peppers is going to sign now. If i were JP i would be sending a thank you stripper-gram to Mr. Freeney.

Re: Dwight Freeney the Colts New $72 Million Man

I'm sorry guys but you don't see the big picture him getting 5 mill per year more than the next highest lineman Seymoure will take defensive players salaries to the roof.

remember 2 years ago when hutchinson got that huge deal in Minnesota well this year avrg guards not even close to hutchinson level asked and received the same type of contract.

Next year every above avrg lineman is going to ask for a contract in the same range or at least between seymour's and freenny contract do you think any of your lineman is worth 9 mill per year.

This agents and owners are screwing the CAP

Re: Dwight Freeney the Colts New $72 Million Man

Besides Peyton how can you pay one player this much. You could get two maybe three good guys for this money. And 30 million signing bonus could have been mine if only i could run fast and sack a Qb

Just sick, To me Peyton being one of they best getting big money is understandable, but a D Lineman who is limited against the run? This is a bad deal on the Colts part in that they really screwed their cap in the coming years but better them than our beloved Skins.

Re: Dwight Freeney the Colts New $72 Million Man

Hey one thing everyone forgot to mention - the good thing about this is now Freeney is off the market and Synder does not have the chance to overpay him and kill our cap! Thank you Colts for preventing our owner from tripping over his own 2 feet again!
