Dwight Freeney is visiting the New England Patriots today. The 33-year-old defensive end is the Colts' franchise career-sacks leader with 107.5, and led the league in that area in 2004. Some believe Freeney is losing a battle nobody has ever won -- the one against Father Time. But the Pats are trying to tool up and maybe even make up for pissing off Tom Brady by not re-signing Wes Welker. Brady's a Freeney fan.

Former NBA star Adrian Dantley is spending his retirement days as a crossing guard at a busy intersection outside of a middle school in Maryland. But he's not doing it for the 14 grand a year it pays him. Dantley doesn't appear to be one of those sad stories of rich athletes gone broke. Nah, he's doing it to pay health insurance, since crossing guards in Montgomery County are covered and NBA veterans are not.
