Chargers' Dwight Freeney to consider retirement at year's end


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Chargers outside linebacker Dwight Freeney, who is in his 13th NFL season, could decide to hang it up for good after this season. Freeney told U-T San Diego he considered retiring at the end of last season when he was put on IR with a torn quad and he will do some serious evaluating this coming offseason. 

"I think after Year 10, I started evaluating where I'm at at the end of the year," Freeney said. "The thing is, when you're in the middle of the year, you've got too much emotion. You've got too much clouding those decisions. That's a big deal. That's a big, big decision that you're going to make that's going to affect so many people, the team, your family, your legacy. I try to leave that decision, no matter how much I go up and down or feel like, 'Yeah, I do,' or, 'No, I don't.' At the end of the year, I sit back, and I'll really think about it."

Freeney has eight tackles this year including two sacks. He is currently 21st on the all-time sack list with 110, one behind his old teammate Robert Mathis.
