San Diego Chargers’ Dwight Freeney Can’t Wait to Get After Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning
Freeney and Manning were teammates with the Indianapolis Colts for 10 seasons, but the defensive end could never hit the quarterback in practice.
Now he can get after Manning all he wants, twice a season.
Plus, he'll face the Colts at San Diego on Oct. 14.
Although his sack numbers have declined each of the last three seasons, the 33-year-old Freeney says he still feels good and hopes for a big year.
He agreed to a two-year contract with the Chargers on May 18, literally as he was boarding a jet for a European vacation.
