Jerrell Freeman tees off on Coby Fleener


For as dysfunctional as the Colts were in 2015, there’s even more dysfunction between a couple of former Colts who have recently left the premises.

After tight end Coby Fleener declared in an introductory conference call with the Saints that some of his teammates were “along for the ride” in 2015, new Bears linebacker Jerrell Freeman has responded, via text messages sent to Bob Kravitz of

“Fleener, he didn’t have the [guts],’’ Freeman told Kravitz. “That sh-t pisses me off. And he must’ve been looking in the mirror when he did the interview.

“I despise guys like that,” Freeman added. “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 sh-tting on me, too. . . . That’s a bitch move.”

Unfortunately, the Saints and Bears don’t play each other during the 2016 regular season.
