Great column by Ashley Fox shooting down collusion theory Dan Leberfeld

DE Dwight Freeney, now of the San Diego Chargers, told CBSSports.com, that the NFL owners are guilty of colluding against the players, and collectively keeping spending down this off-season, especially when it comes to veteran free agents.

ESPN columnist Ashley Fox wrote a terrific column shooting down this theory, and ran an enlightening quote from one personnel executive.

“If the veterans watch film of other veterans, they wouldn’t sign them either,” a former player who is now in personnel with an NFL team told Fox. “No conspiracy theory, just most of the veterans are old, injured and not that good.”
