Huard’s Chalk Talk: Wilson, Baldwin beat the blitz

After working out for the Seahawks on Tuesday, Freeney, 37, shared a tweet indicating that he is joining the team. The Seahawks subsequently retweeted the post on their own Twitter account.

A seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time All Pro, Freeney has a free agent this season after playing 15 games with the Atlanta Falcons in 2016. He spent the majority of his career with the Indianapolis Colts, and also had stints with the Chargers and Cardinals. He has 122.5 sacks over his career, including three last season.
