San Diego Chargers Add Free-Agent Defensive End Dwight Freeney

May 18 (Bloomberg) -- The San Diego Chargers agreed to a two-year contract with free-agent defensive end Dwight Freeney, the National Football League team said on its website.

Freeney, 33, played the past 11 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, who declined to offer him a contract in February. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection recorded 10 or more sacks seven times and led the NFL with 16 sacks in 2004.

“It’s great to add a solid veteran who brings valuable experience to our defense,” Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. “His proven pass-rush ability is a perfect fit for our defense.”

Freeney set a Colts record with 107.5 sacks in 163 games. He played on seven division champions, two conference champions and the Colts’ 2006 team which beat Chicago 29-17 in the Super Bowl.
