So far through the first few days of training camp Dwight Freeney has looked impressive, showing off good speed and athleticism. Dwight Freeney missed most of last season after suffering a season ending torn quad against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4.

"“Everybody thinks he’s lost a step being as old as he is,” Dunlap said to Eric Williams of ESPN.com “But I think he’s actually got a step faster because he’s a lot smarter than he used to be. He’s an intelligent football player. He can look at you and your set off the ball and work his move, and beat you just from looking at you.” – King Dunlap"

  • Dwight Freeney in an interview with Eric Williams of ESPN.com expressed his desire to to prove this season that he’s still “one of the best pass-rushers in the game”.

    "“For me, every time I step on the field, I kind of find a way to somehow put something in my head to where I have to prove something and I think you always do to a certain extent. Prove to all of the doubters that you can still do it. Prove to that young guy who was born in 1992 that you can run faster than him still.” – Dwight Freeney"

    With the return of Dwight Freeney as a situational pass rusher, a healthy Melvin Ingram and second-round pick Jerry Attaochu the Chargers expect their pass rush to be much improved this season.
