Dwight Freeney set to visit Falcons next week

Dwight Freeney has had one of the lengthiest careers in the NFL and it looks like it could come to a close soon. However, he is planning on playing in the 2016 season and he will be visiting the Atlanta Falcons next week.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Freeney, who has played for the San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals since leaving the Indianapolis Colts after the 2012 season, is visiting the Cincinnati Bengals today and will visit in Atlanta next week.

After only recording four sacks across the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the Chargers, Freeney turned things around by recording eight sacks with the Cardinals last year and helping them to the NFC Championship Game. That was his highest total since nailing down 8.5 in 2011.

Dwight Freeney’s presence could certainly help the team by giving them the veteran experience. It could help youngsters like Vic Beasley and Keanu Neal over the coming seasons.
