No real surprise here, but DE Dwight Freeney takes this award thank to his first true impact performance in an Arizona Cardinals uniform.
In spot duty as a pass-rushing specialist, Freeney had two tackles and a sack while pressuring Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco on a handful of occasions late in Monday night’s game.
For being signed just a matter of weeks ago, Freeney has hit the ground running and looks to be a major contributor on the Cardinals’ defense in 2015. That’s good news for Arizona as pure pass rushers – not coming from the blitz – was much needed to solidify the team’s defensive unit.
Freeney has racked up 112.5 sacks throughout his 14-year career and he appears to have something left into the tank to add to that total as we progress through the remainder of this year.
