Dwight Freeny signed a 6 year contract with the Colts today worth more than 70 million bucks. I love Dwight, he's a great player and I like the Colts but for that position, is he worth that kind of money? I think it's the richest contract for a defensive player, It's QB money, what do you guys think?

Hard to get too excited about NFL contracts simply because they're not guaranteed. Generally the player gets a certain signing bonus up front and then his yearly stipend, but the team can cut him at any time and the contract is done.

raising hand and standing" colts fan here.

I think thqat most pros get to much money but yes that is way to much for that position. He will probabaly not get a whole lot of sacks either. Teams double him up on the line then hit him with a back before he can get to the QB. He is awesome and will probably end up being one of the greatest of all time but that is a lot of money.

I agree with you. It's especially too much money since they really need a middle Linebacker. We'll see how their defense plays, I guess.
