Dwight Freeney signs 2-year deal with Chargers

After 11 seasons, 7 Pro Bowl appearances, and a Super Bowl title with the Colts, veteran NFL linebacker Dwight Freeney is leaving Indianapolis for the Chargers, agreeing to a two-year deal with the team yesterday. The deal is worth at least $8.75 million total plus incentives. 

"It's great to add a solid veteran who brings valuable experience to our defense," said Chargers coach Mike McCoy. "His proven pass-rush ability is a perfect fit for our defense."

In my opinion, this deal won't really help the Chargers but, like with the current Charles Woodson situation, Freeney deserves to play somewhere.
