Dwight Freeney surprised at no Indianapolis Colts offer

Dwight Freeney admits that he is surprised not to end his career at Indianapolis Colts.

Defensive end Dwight Freeney has admitted that Indianapolis Colts' failure to offer him a new contract has "surprised" him.

Freeney said that he would have accepted a much lower salary in order to end his career at the Colts.

"I'll be honest with you, I was surprised the way it happened," he told the Indianapolis Star.

"I figured they would offer me something low and I would just accept it, go the last few years and retire a Colt.

"I won't say [I'm bitter] because I understand the business side of it. [They] took a chance on me, and I have to be grateful for that. I've had a long career in Indy, longer than most people in one place."

Freeney made 12 combined tackles and five assists in the 2012 season.
