Lughead Posted February 20, 2007 Share Posted February 20, 2007 Now that the Colts tagged Dwight Freeney . link Tag! Freeney's Still a Colt Posted Feb 19th 2007 7:15PM by David J. Warner Filed under: Colts, AFC South, Indianapolis In a move about as shocking as the divorce of Britney and K-Fed, the Indianapolis Colts slapped a franchise tag on Dwight Freeney today, which will earn him a one-year, $8.64 million deal. Unlike some players who have gotten tagged in the last week or two, Freeney probably won't be too upset about the tag, and he and his agent will continue to negotiate with GM Bill Polian to try and get a long-term deal. Of course, the real question about Indy's defense this offseason was never about Freeney, but about his defensive teammates. Both starting outside linebackers, Cato June and Rob Morris, and both starting cornerbacks, Nick Harper and Jason David, are all free agents, and the Colts were projected to be less than $5 million under the projected salary cap before Freeney got tagged. June was already considered out the door, but what about Harper and David? Will the Colts be able to keep them for another season? Or can they be replaced as easily as this team replaces linebackers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
