While most understood when the Colts anounced that they would part ways with defensive end Dwight Freeney, Freeney himself was a little miffed.
"I'll be honest with you, I was surprised the way it happened," Freeney told The Indianapolis Star's Mike Chappell on Wednesday, via NFL.com. "I figured they would offer me something low and I would just accept it, go the last few years and retire a Colt and that would be it.
"That didn't happen."
While he doesn't harbor any ill feelings towards those who made the decision, he can't help but be a little dissapointed.
"I won't say there's bitterness because I understand the business side of it," Freeney said. "Jim took a chance on me and I have to be grateful for that. I've had a long career in Indy, longer than most people in one place.
"I just thought they would offer me something, but they didn't. So I guess I'm a little disappointed."
