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: Griffin III's fifth-year contract option for the 2016 season will be exercised by the Washington Redskins.
Impact: The Redskins have three quarterbacks signed for next season: Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. All started at times last season, when Washington went 4-12. Griffin was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, then earned NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. But he tore knee ligaments in a playoff game at the end of that season.
