INDIANAPOLIS -- Dwight Freeney will be the latest addition to the Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor at Lucas Oil Stadium. 

Freeney played 11 seasons with the Colts after being selected by the team in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Syracuse. In those 11 seasons in Indianapolis he saw action in 163 games and recorded 307 tackles, 107.5 sacks, and 44 forced fumbles.

He ranks second in team history in career sacks. Freeney played 16 seasons in the NFL spending with San Diego Chargers (2013-14), Arizona Cardinals (2015), Altanta Falcons (2016), Seattle Seahawks (2017) and Detroit Lions after parting ways with the Colts. 

“From the first day Dwight Freeney stepped on the field we knew he was special,” said Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay. “Sixteen seasons later, Dwight exceeded every expectation we had and became one of the game’s best pass rushers ever.

As a Colt, Freeney was a three-time Associated Press First Team All-Pro and a seven-time Pro Bowl selection. He was a member of the Colts’ Super Bowl XLI championship team during the 2006 campaign and played in two more Super Bowls, one as a Colt and one as a member of the Atlanta Falcons.
