The 35-year-old Freeney hasn't sniffed much action on the open market after putting up 3.5 sacks in 16 games -- including nine starts -- with the San Diego Chargers in 2014. He did put up 40 quarterback hurries, a product several teams could use.
Bill Polian drafted Freeney in the first round in 2002 for the Indianapolis Colts. The pass rusher flourished, compiling double-digit sacks in each of his first four seasons. However, Freeney hasn't hit a 10-sack season since 2010.
"A lot of it is up in the air," Freeney said. "I have aspirations to play, but the thing is I have to be in the right situation for me. I can't get put in a situation where I'm running away from the ball. I want to run toward the guy with the ball more than I'm running away."
With diminished speed off the edge, Freeney's last hope is to latch on as a rotational pass rusher. Given that camps are a week from opening, his best bet to land a job might be after the first week of the season when contracts aren't guaranteed and injuries begin to mount.
