“I’m licking my chops,” Freeney told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times. “When you have a rookie offensive tackle, I can’t wait. Because for an offensive tackle, you’re not good until you’re in like
your eighth year. You’ve got to get beat up for a while to learn what to
do and what not to. It’s when you’re about in your fifth through 10th
years as an offensive tackle that you’re in your prime.
“All these rookies coming out? They don’t know anything,” Freeney said. “I can’t wait.”
Freeney also has a soft spot for rookie quarterbacks.
“I couldn’t wait to hit Mark Sanchez,” Freeney told Farmer. “And I can’t wait
to hit Tim Tebow even more.”
It’s still unclear whether Freeney will get a crack at Tebow in 2010. The Colts play the Broncos in Week 3, but it’s not likely at this point that Tebow will be the starting quarterback.
