Freeney Accuses Teams Of Collusion

by Nicholas Reguin | Posted on Friday, May 31st, 2013

Dwight Freeney spent the offseason with surprisingly little interest from teams, before finally signing a two-year, $8.75 deal with San Diego, a deal worth much less than what he was asking for.

Apparently Freeney spent his jobless time trying to figure out why he had surprisingly low interest from teams, virtually none, and he came to the conclusion that the league all came together and decided not to spend on free agents.

“I basically think the owners got together and decided not to spend cash on free agents,” said Freeney to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. “I think the owners made a pact. There’s only 32 of them and none of them broke the ranks,” continued Freeney.

It’s understandable for Freeney to be upset, but evidently, Freeney failed to take into account that rookies are adapting to the league much quicker than when he was a rookie.

It used to be that a rookie took a couple years before he could really have a impact, but now, rookies are having immediate impacts in the league, which would fully explain why most NFL free agents aren’t getting anywhere near as much as they had hoped to get.

Freeney’s accusation is one that the NFLPA is bound to investigate, but Freeney making that statement is incredibly bold. However, guy who’s under contract until he’s 35 has nothing to lose by accusing all the owners of a possible crime, but it seems more like Freeney is throwing a fit more than anything else, and venting his feelings.

Freeney’s accusations are very serious, but it’s likely untrue. Freeney also states that he’s going to get his revenge, saying that “I’m going to make them all regret it.”
