    Defensive end Dwight Freeney has spent his entire football career chasing and sacking quarterbacks. Now, he's going to be paid as the premier player at his position.....

    Pretty insane money for a DE.


    Yeah it will be interesting to see if they have any cap trouble later on (Manning's gets pretty spendy in a couple years).
    At least they don't have to worry about giving any unproven top draft picks a load of money any time soon.

    That's a lot of money, I wonder who will be the first $100 million player.

    These monster contracts could ruin the Colts....sure these bigger players are amazing but they don't make up a whole team. Freeney didn't do so well last year anyways.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Over paid he is not worth 12 million a year!


    Julian Peppers is better than Freeney!


    I would like to have him on the Vikes but he isn't worth that money, that's over 1/10 of your entire payroll.


    Daunte had a 10 year 100 million contract but he never could have reached all of the incentives.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Didn't favre get a 100 million deal with his lifetime contract.
    In baseball A-rod is going to get at least 30 million a year. His last contract was 10 years $250,000,000.00.
