Dwight Freeney not finished with NFL — or with Falcons

Officially, Dwight Freeney isn’t a member of the 2017 Atlanta Falcons.

All signs point to that changing sooner than later.

Some of the $4.3 million salary cap credit that Atlanta receives Friday already appears earmarked toward re-signing the future Pro Football Hall of Fame edge-rusher who contributed both on and off the field last season as the Falcons reached Super Bowl 51.

“I’ve already been talking to the coaches and going back and forth here and there with the draft picks and free agents,” Freeney told co-host Bill Polian and me Thursday night on SiriusXM NFL Radio. “That line of communication is still very open. They say they’re still very interested.

The talk about “walking away from $15 million,” for example: How that was leading to outrageous contract demands that no team wanted to meet, and about how he’d still be on the 49ers’ roster if Cheap College Jerseys he hadn’t turned them down, so he has no one to blame but himself.

We file our reports in compliance with league guidelines.

Have you seen progress in players self-reporting concussion-like Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys symptoms?

You know, our medical staff really handles the injury situation with players. Players don’t come to me and I don’t treat them for injuries. That’s not really my job. That’s what we have medical staff for.

To what degree is player safety important to you personally, particularly as it pertains to concussions and head injuries?

Yeah, I think I’ve talked about that quite a bit. Our foundation supports that cause. Personally, I’ve spent a lot of time on it.
