"He sent me a text and he just said, 'Hey man, don't worry, come play with me in Denver,' " Freeney told "PFT Live." "I don't know how serious it was but, you know, it's good to hear some of your former teammates still follow you, they care and they want to see you succeed."
"I think they've got a couple good pass rushers over there," Freeney said. "I don't know if they have room for me."
Meanwhile, if the New York Giants are interested in Freeney, they might be an early favorite. Freeney told NFL.com's Adam Schein on Wednesday that he grew up a Giants fans and "playing for them would be a dream."
Freeney's dip in production this season (five sacks, 12 tackles in 14 games) should serve as a red flag that Freeney, 33, might not be the pass-rushing terror he was in the previous decade. But put in the right situation, playing for the right team, Freeney still can have value.
One team will be happy to take its chances.
