Dwight Freeney interested in both Jets and Giants

Former Colts pass rusher Dwight Freeney said on Sirius XM Wednesday that playing for the Giants, his favorite team growing up, would be a "dream," Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.  Freeney played in college at Syracuse and grew up in nearby Hartford, Conn.

But he also said the Jets would be intriguing, too. Freeney, the Colts franchise leader in sacks, said he admired the way Rex Ryan's system could get him favorable matchups and sack opportunities.

“We’ll see, obviously Rex is a great guy, I actually know Rex, I met him a few times,’’ Freeney said. “Obviously playing in New York, that is obviously something that’s very attractive. Scheme-wise, I’m sure Rex knows how to free guys up. That would be a good fit but a lot of teams would be a good fit. I’m an east coast guy, it makes sense, it feels good but we’ll see the next few weeks who’s actually interested.’’
