    Freeny Franchised: There goes that dream

    The one free agent I was hoping to pick up more than any other. Oh well.

    Only the most homerific of fans believed there was any real chance of the Vikings (or anyone else) landing Freeney.

    No surprise there at all... If the Colts didn't franchise Freeney, everyone would have called them stupid..

    Cato June does remain an option now though..

    Thats why it was a dream. But that is why we would have Peyton Manning, Steve Smith, and Chad Johnson.

    It would have been sweet, but we didn't have a snowball's chance! Cato June anyone?

    Heh, Peyton better start renegotiating his contract or the Colts better start cutting folks.

    :P Thats about $9.5M in guaranteed cap hit right there.
    I think they were right about at the Salary Cap for the coming year.

    He is worthless against the run anyway.
    I'd rather have a d end that can rush the passer without forgetting that QB's tend to hand it off every now and then.

    Take it from someone who lives in Indy. Cato June is terrible. Most overrated player in the NFL last season. Pro-Bowl bid was a
    joke. Mediocre at best. I'd rather have the guys we got.
