There's more to Dwight Freeney than just football.

Every offseason, the accomplished end for the Indianapolis Colts makes appearances on a variety of television programs as he builds a resume for his post-NFL career.

For the second time in as many years, he has done a video with the comedy site Funny or Die.

After a hilarious debut in which he makes himself sick eating cereal, Freeney takes a gentle poke at diehard fans in his second short film.

He dons golf apparel and gets a little too intense while watching the Golf Channel.

Earlier this offseason, he appeared on Rachel Ray's cooking show in a mini-competition with Kamerion Wimbley and Martellus Bennett.

Freeney has consistently used his visibility as an NFL star to open post-career doors for himself. He has done several Internet shorts and filled in as a guest host for Jim Rome in 2011.

He's smart enough to know that NFL careers are short, and he'll have a lot of years to fill when his playing days are done.

The Indianapolis Colts' all-time sack leader is likely feeling the first twinges of NFL mortality as his deal with the team that drafted him is about to expire. Barring something unforeseen, he's in his final weeks with the franchise.

Freeney likely needs another 20 to 30 sacks over the final seasons of his career to get serious consideration for enshrinement in the Hall of Fame. A gold blazer would further raise his visibility and increase his odds of a post-career media job.
