Colts make it official: Freeney won't be back

INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts said Friday they will not re-sign former league sacks champion Dwight Freeney or oft-injured receiver Austin Collie.

Both will become unrestricted free agents next month.

Collie just couldn't stay healthy. He wound up on season-ending injured reserve in September with a ruptured patellar tendon in his right knee and there were continual concerns about a series of concussions he had.

Freeney, Indy's career sacks leader, turns 33 next week. His sacks totals declined for a third straight year in 2012, this time after moving from defensive end to outside linebacker.

Team owner Jim Irsay said in a statement that few players had more impact on the Colts' success than Freeney, who Irsay calls an "artist" and a "joy to watch."
