Chargers sign DE Freeney

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Chargers have agreed to a two-year deal with star pass rusher Dwight Freeney that could be worth $13.35 million.

The deal to bring Freeney to the Chargers came four days after outside linebacker Melvin Ingram tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a padless practice.

The addition of Freeney also helps cushion the loss of outside linebackers Antwan Barnes and Shaun Phillips to free agency.

Freeney, 33, entering his 12th season, was Indianapolis' career sacks leader before the Colts decided not to re-sign him in the offseason. His sacks totals declined each of the past three years.

Chargers rookie general manager Tom Telesco was with the Colts before being hired by San Diego in January.
