Dwight Freeney signed up to play a 16th NFL season to try and win a second Super Bowl ring. Now that that possibility is over, Freeney said he has not decided if he'll return again in 2018. "It could be (my last game)," Freeney said of Sunday's Detroit Lions season finale against the Green Bay Packers. "I always say I got to evaluate a couple months after (the season) just to take the emotions out. Take all that stuff out, cause you’re always (ticked) off now and I’ve retired about five times already. Like, 'Screw this, I’m done.' 'Screw this, we lost.' 'Playoffs? Hell no, we didn’t make the playoffs.' So I’ve been here before." Freeney, who signed with the Seattle Seahawks in mid-October and joined the Lions as a waiver claim the day before Thanksgiving, will miss the postseason this year for just the third time in his career. He has not made a tackle in four games with the Lions, but came close to two sacks while playing 23 snaps in last week's 26-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
