"I'm going to talk to Peyton, one red-zone play, that's all I need. Just one. I want to catch the ball," Freeney told Colts GM Bill Polian yesterday.

Defenders with similar builds have been used on offense; Mike Vrabel and Julius Peppers have probably been the most effective.

Last season, defensive tackle Darrell Reid was used on offense. Reid was mainly used as a blocker, as a fullback. In 2006, the Colts also used defensive tackle Dan Klecko at fullback. The Colts would likely use Freeney as a tight end or catching fullback.

With all the depth the Colts have at tight end, it is unlikely that Freeney will become a familiar face in the Colts offensive huddle.
