News: Freeman has signed his one-year, $2.35 million restricted free-agent tender with the Colts, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Impact: With Freeman under contract for the 2015 season, he's on track to reprise his starting inside linebacker role for the Colts. The 28-year-old helped out IDP owners last season, when he was healthy, by racking up 95 tackles and 1.5 sacks in 12 games played.

News: Indianapolis has re-signed Freeman.
Impact: Freeman joined the Colts in 2012 after spending three seasons in the Canadian Football League. Since then, he has been one of Indy's most productive defenders. Last season, Freeman was credited by the coaches with 144 tackles, second on the team. He led the Colts in tackles in 2013 and was named AFC defensive player of the week after recording two takeaways in a late-season game against Kansas City. Freeman could become an unrestricted free agent after next season.

News: Freeman, a restricted free agent who remains unsigned, did not attend the Colts' offseason voluntary workouts that began Monday, the Indianapolis Star reports.
Impact: Freeman was given a contract tender offer by the Colts, but he hasn't signed it and appears to be skipping workouts in an effort to get a long-term deal. Freeman has until Friday to get an offer from another team which the Colts could match. The Colts tendered Freeman a one-year, $2.35 million contract which would require another team to give up a second-round draft pick to sigh him.
