The Indianapolis Colts are entertaining the possibility of trading defensive end Dwight Freeney, ESPN.com reported, citing sources.
According to the report, Freeney has a cap number of $19 million for 2012 and appears unwilling to rework the deal. If that is true, the Colts will have a hard time finding a taker, even though the premium that exists for big-time pass rushers.
The report goes on to say that the fire sale in Indy might not stop with Freeney, as Dallas Clark and Gary Brackett might be available for the right price as well.
The Colts apparently have a steep asking price for Freeney and the others, so there is no guarantee they will be moved, but the notion is interesting given the team's rebuilding plan that began Wednesday with the release of Peyton Manning.
