Veterans lead Colts toward playoffs

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS — Make no mistake. The former Syracuse standout would love to be back with the Colts.

“Absolutely. I’m kind of old school in a way. Back in the day where you couldn’t leave a team, that’s pretty much where you were and that’s what you were known as," Freeney said. "This is all I’ve ever known, this city, these people, these fans and hopefully I can be a horseshoe again this offseason.”

He admits that the possibility of today's game being his final appearance in Lucas Oil Stadium with the Colts hasn't completely sunk in yet.

“I guess maybe a little bit when I get [to the stadium]. You really don’t know. This could be it. We’ll see what happens for me and my career later and what they decide to do. Those are all business decisions for both of us. But yeah, I think the later in your career, the older you get and especially when your contract is what it is, you have to sit there and say, ‘Hey this might be it, man.’ Just take in as much as you can take in," Freeney said, adding that battling a nagging ankle injury during a contract year hasn't been easy.

“I’m going to leave that with those guys. I think for me, all I can do is to perform and play. I’ve been a guy that’s played regardless. I think I was supposed to be out four weeks. I’m back in two. They said I’m supposed to be back in six. I’m back in two. I just go out and do what I’m supposed to do and give it my all. If management wants to recognize that and say, ‘Hey we are going to keep you around regardless,’ that’s their decision. I’m sure they will do right by me and factor in everything. When it’s time to make that decision, they will.”
