Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney has made it known he wants to finish his career with the franchise:
“I’m kind of old school when it comes to that thought,” Freeney told Alex Marvez of Sirius XM Radio. “I’m not LeBron trying to leave the team. I’m more like the era of Magic and Lawrence Taylor, who stayed with that same team for their entire careers win, lose, or draw. They were married to the city they were drafted in. You go through the tough times and great times with them, and that’s it. That’s what I’m looking forward to.”
I love that LeBron is now the poster child for ditching a city as a free agent. Until LeBron wins a championship (and probably for awhile afterwards), his legacy will remain firmly focused on the Decision and the aftermath.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person.
