After Asante getting franchised, my thoughts have gone to the Colts and their impending loss of some good free agents. There will be some good questions coming up with the Colts. I imagine they will franchise freeney, but in doing so which, if not most, free agents will they lose? Who will restructure to make the contract work? How accomodating will Freeney be? Is he waiting to drive up his price by getting teams like the Packers in the midst who are rumored to want to go defense? How much cap space do the Colts have to clear to keep Freeney and also sign their draft picks? The Colts look like they will NOT be able to add any free agents. So the only talent that will be added is through the draft. So with all this.... could there be even a small possibility with the Colts not franchising Freeney because of the salary cap position they are in. Is one player worth so much more than keeping 3-4 other players? I imagine they will Franchise him to even let's say trade him like the Pats and Asante.
