Report: Dwight Freeney to visit Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday

With both of their starting defensive ends battling injuries, the Seattle Seahawks are scheduled to host veteran defensive end Dwight Freeney for a visit and physical on Tuesday.

Seattle desperately needs to bolster their pass rush with Cliff Avril on Injured Reserve for at least seven more games as he recovers from a severe neck injury he suffered in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts, and Michael Bennett battling a plantar fascia injury in his foot.

Freeney, who entered the league a first-round pick from Syracuse, spent the first 11 years of his NFL career (2002-2012) with the Indianapolis Colts, where he earned Pro Bowl honors seven times, All-Pro honors four times, and played a key role in the team’s run to the Super Bowl XLI title.

After leaving Indianapolis, Freeney played two seasons for the San Diego Chargers (2013-2014), one season for the Arizona Cardinals (2015), and in 15 games for the Atlanta Falcons in 2016.

With 122.5 career sacks Freeney is likely a shoe-in for eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
