Dwight Freeney entered the NFL in 2002, the same year the Texans joined the NFL.

And since then, the defensive end has helped the Colts win seven AFC South titles, has gone to seven Pro Bowls and even helped the Lombardi Trophy make its way to Indy.

And Sunday might mark his final regular season game as a member of the Colts.

Freeney, who has had seven seasons with double-digit sack totals has just four this season. If that's what he ends up with after Sunday's afternoon game, it'll be the second-lowest total of his 11-year career and lowest since he played in just nine games in 2007.

"I’m 32 years old, turning 33 (Feb. 19), going into my 12th year,” Freeney said to the Indianapolis Star. “Numbers not the best, making a lot of money... That’s not really a good combination for staying in an organization.

“That being said, I’ve done a lot. We’ll see what happens at the end of the year. I can only do as much as I can.”

As the Star points out, only 17 players were on the team's 53-man roster in 2011 -- a 68-percent turnover. The Colts have proven that they'll do what they need in order to win.
