  • That's disappointing. Freeney looked pretty good until the last game. Hopefully this is to make room for Shead or a new RB.

  • I bet its because Freeney was freewheeling to much on his pass rushes instead of keeping contain on the edges like the defensive scheme calls for. He spinned inside, losing outside contain, which allowed Ryan to scramble for an easy first down. If theres one thing Pete does not tolerate in his players, its losing contain.

  • When you're only 50k under the cap and need to clear space for another RB and possibly O-lineman and/or DB, someone has to go.

    IIRC, Marsh was jettisoned for a similar reason.

  • If it's for Shead or McDowell I can live with it. Would rather Shead than Lane.

    If its because Cassius Marsh just got released from NE i'll be bummed.

    I don't think so, that's not in Freeny's character. He's about as stand up of a player as there is in the league........and we're 6-4, not 3-7. He wouldn't bail on a 6-4 team that's still in a playoff race.

  • His salary isn't guaranteed, so he's one of a few who we can cut to save money. I'm guessing they are impressed with Jordan which makes losing Freeney the easiest option.

    Still sucks to lose him, he's played pretty well, he's got something like 3 sacks in 4 games. Plus Clark raves about him so I was hoping to see some more time for mentoring there.

  • That was one of the coolest stories on our team this year, sucks to see him dropped, especially since he was contributing.

    I hope he gets picked up by a contender.

  • I don't think it's a coincidence that this happened at the same time Marsh was cut by the Patriots.

    So if I had to guess, it's so we can sign Marsh, who is more versatile and knows our system vs a 3rd down DE.

    According to Brock Huard, it was Bobby who was stunting and had outside contain on that pass rush and he got caught up inside, which gave Ryan a ton of room to run through.

  • Cap space ($375k), roster spot for CB or RB, recovering week after week at 37 years old, losing containment, the rise of Dion Jordan, Marcus Smith's recovery, etc. all likely contributed to this decision. If McDowell has a chance to be cleared, that could also be a factor. And they might even be able to re-sign him down the road if need be.

    oh that's interesting.

    Cassius Marsh or J. Collins from Atlanta could be the waiver wire pickup

  • Waive Eddy “Twinkle Toes” Lacy while you’re at it, please! Any RB on any other team’s practice squad has to be better than him.

    I'd be surprised if it happened but you never know he certainly fits the part long term.

  • There was quite a bit of "educated speculation" on 710 today that he probably initiated the separation. Maybe he decided he really just wanted to be retired, maybe nagging injury that he was sick of playing through, or possibly just decided getting a ring wasn't going to happen and that was the only remaining motivating factor.

    Has he said anything about it? I was really liking him on the team.

    If that's the case, why would they waive him before Marsh cleared waivers? It would be a risky move, small risk, but a risk nonetheless. It would be entirely possible for both players to be claimed off waivers before Marsh fell to the Seahawks.

    If it was to clear a spot for Marsh, they would have waited until Marsh fell to them.

    Apparently if a player is on the team roster as of Wednesday, you have to pay him for the full week, whether you cut him later on in the week or not.

    So cutting him on Tuesday instead of waiting to see if they get a claimed player, saves the Hawks one week's salary on Freeneys cap hit. The Hawks are tight against the cap, so that's my guess as to why they would release him now instead of waiting for a particular player like Marsh to pass through waivers.
