Just days after signing on with the Seattle Seahawks, veteran pass rusher Dwight Freeney will be playing this Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made it clear the team has “no hesitation” to play Freeney, who just signed a one-year deal on Tuesday night.
Pete Carroll said new DE Dwight Freeney picked things up quickly: "No hesitation on playing him this weekend. He’s ready to go." #Seahawks

Freeney had been unsigned since Super Bowl LI when he was a member of the NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons. He recorded eight sacks with Arizona in 2015, three for Atlanta last season and has recorded 122.5 sacks over the course of his career, which places Freeney at No. 18 in NFL history.
