Two former members of the Colts might be starting a feud after Coby Fleener burned his teammates only to be scorched by Jerrell Freeman in return.
As he left the Colts to join the Saints last week, tight end Coby Fleener had some choice words about his teammates “being along for the ride.” Another former member of the team, Jerrell Freeman, said his piece about Fleener.
Speaking to WTHR’s Bob Kravitz via text, Freeman lit Fleener on fire. (Minor language warning)
"“Fleener, he didn’t have the (guts),’’ Freeman wrote (sort of). “That (bleep) pisses me off. And he must’ve been looking in the mirror when he did the interview.“I despise guys like that. That’s what little girls do, talk about you when you’re not around. I’m a grown man. If I see something I don’t like, I’m going to go have a face-to-face convo with that player/players and we are going to get an understanding! I feel like I had a hand in building what’s over there (in Indianapolis), so he’s (bleeping) on me, too.“That’s a bitch move.“You can print all that, brotha!’’"

Fleener might be the poster child for not giving 100 percent effort, and he’s certainly been the most inconsistent member of the Colts the past few years. It’s nice to hear someone who isn’t even with the team anymore call out Fleener on his nonsense.
None of this explains why Freeman left the Colts for the Bears for the exact same contract, especially when he’s on record saying he wanted to stay in Indianapolis. All reports indicate that Freeman was offered the same contract he signed in Chicago, just before he signed with a new agent. It doesn’t even sound like the Colts had a chance to negotiate with him.
The best part of Freeman’s rant against Fleener? That he encourages Kravitz to print all of it, giving Colts fans one final gift as he leaves. Unfortunately, the Bears and Saints don’t face each other this season so we won’t be able to see the two settle matters on the field.
