NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports the Chargers have agreed to terms with the veteran defensive end/linebacker on a two-year contract.
Terms of the pact haven’t been announced, but the 33-year-old is glad to find a new home.

Freeney, whose long career with the Colts came to an end this offseason, received little interest on the open market, but his services became in demand after the Bolts lost linebacker Melvin Ingram to a torn ACL.
Although Freeney isn’t as dominant as he once was, he still has enough left in the tank to make a significant contribution, especially in a 4-3 scheme he’s comfortable with.
Freeney recorded five sacks last season, giving him 107.5 takedowns in his 12-year career.
