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.

News: Freeman received a qualifying offer from the Colts on Thursday, the team's official website reports.
Impact: A restricted free agent, Freeman has seemingly done enough to warrant a second-round tender, and it's unlikely any team would be willing to part with such a high pick for his services. While somewhat limited by injuries in 2014, he's one of the more consistent starters for Indy's shaky defense. Freeman finished the 2014 regular season with 94 tackles in 12 games, serving in a three-down role when healthy.
