A few months ago, Dwight Freeney’s great career looked over. He had been a free agent since March and yet no one signed him all through the offseason, training camp, the preseason and into the start of the regular season.
But Freeney finally caught on with the Cardinals in October, and he has played well as a situational pass rusher. Last night, he sealed the Cardinals’ win with a strip sack of Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
“That’s why I came back, because moments like this, you can’t duplicate those in life,” Freeney said.
Freeney now has four sacks and two forced fumbles for the Cardinals, bringing his career totals to 115.5 sacks and 45 forced fumbles. Freeney has had a great career, and his great moments aren’t over.
