According to a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette, the Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in signing free agent defensive end Dwight Freeney.
Bouchette states the Broncos also have interest in the former Colt, a story that has been circulating ever since Denver lost out on re-signing Elvis Dumervil. Rotoworld suggests the Saints could also be in on Freeney.
Last season Freeney played 14 games for the Colts with 13 starts. He notched five sacks, 10 tackles, one deflected pass and one forced fumble. The Syracuse alum missed time with an ankle injury.
Yesterday, it was reported that former Falcons defensive end John Abraham was visiting the New England Patriots on Friday as part of the Pat’s continuing quest to improve their pass rush.
Abraham isn’t the only veteran defensive end that will be visiting New England today, Tom Curran of Comcast Sportsnet is reporting that the Patriots will also host former Indianapolis Colt Dwight Freeney.

The big time cuts keep coming this Friday afternoon. A few minutes after Charles Woodson’s released was confirmed, the Indy Star’s Bob Kravtiz dropped some big news out of Indianapolis.
As you can see above, Freeney’s deal was up so this isn’t really a cut. Kravitz was told by a Colts source that if Collie had come along at the same time as Peyton Manning the former could’ve put up Wes Welker like numbers.
Alas, two of the final remnants of a fantastic Colts team are on their way out. Robert Mathis and Reggie Wayne make up the final two. Kravtiz says the Colts have every intention of putting Freeney’s name in the Lucas Oil ring of honor.
