NFL Free-Agent Scouting Report: Dwight Freeney

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterMarch 5, 2013

Dwight Freeney hits free agency at the age of 33, coming off his worst statistical year since entering the league.

However, smart general managers and personnel will look at his 2012 tape and see a player who, while not the all-around player he may have been in his prime, can still help a team—especially on obvious passing downs. 

Of course, it will come down to how much a team is willing to pay to have an aging pass-rushing specialist take up a valuable roster spot. 

In the video above, I take a look at Freeney's prospects in free agency, including a couple of possible landing spots. Let us know in the comments below where you see Freeney landing in 2013.
