Dwight Freeney Retiring; State Native Will Go Out As A Colt

Dwight Freeney to end NFL career by signing and retiring with the Indianapolis Colts

"Bill (Polian) had seen Dwight and thought he was exactly the guy I had been talking about", Dungy said of Freeney.

Selected No. 11 overall in the 2002 NFL Draft, the undersized but freakishly quick Freeney was ideally suited for Tony Dungy's Tampa-2 defense.

He teamed with Robert Mathis as one of the best sack tandems in the National Football League for several seasons.

Freeney announced the news on the Colts' website.

Dwight Freeney has announced he will retire after 16 seasons in the NFL. He's scheduled to have a formal press conference in Indianapolis on Monday.

Thanks for the memories, @dwightfreeney!

He was a starter for the Colts' Super Bowl XLI championship team and the 2009 AFC championship squad that advanced to Super Bowl XLIV.

Freeney was a 7-time Pro Bowler and a three-time first-team All-Pro. He had begun his career four straight seasons with at least 11.0 sacks while tallying double-digit sack totals seven times during his tenure with his total of 107.5 ranking second all-time in franchise history behind Robert Mathis (123.0). Freeney played the 2017 season with the Seahawks where he notched 3.0 sacks in four games played. He will be missed.
