The San Diego Chargers signed Dwight Freeney in the offseason but according to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated, Freeney said the Indianapolis Colts never made an offer to retain him.
"I wished they would have offered me something so I could've retired a Colt -- that was something that meant a lot to me -- but at the end of the day they didn't give me an option," Freeney said. "They didn't even try to re-sign me. They were like, We're going in a different direction.
"That cut me deep because it was kind of like, if it's a money issue talk to me about it and maybe I'll say it's fine just so I'll be able to stay and not move and all that stuff. But the fact of the matter is, they didn't offer me anything. They just said, Bye bye, which made me feel like, You think I'm done and I'm washed up; or, You're playing for the future and this is the perfect opportunity to make the change because there's a young guy you really feel can play now, so let's groom him because, really, how many years does Dwight have left? It's the same thing they did with Peyton [Manning]."
