RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Freeman made the Colts roster as an undrafted free agent who previously played in the CFL, and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor before that, so it would be an understatement to say that his 145 tackles took the league by huge surprise. Freeman rounded out his superb 2012 with two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception he returned for a touchdown.

Freeman played three seasons for Saskatchewan in the CFL, where he was a 2011 All Star. He'll compete for a reserve linebacker role.
Will try to make the roster as a backup linebacker or on special teams.
