Dumervil, a fourth-round draft pick out of Louisville in 2006, had 20½ sacks the last two seasons, making two trips to the Pro Bowl alongside Miller, the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 who had 18½ sacks last year, breaking the franchise record of 17 set by Dumervil in 2009.
Together they were dubbed ‘‘Doom & Gloom,’’ and were the most prolific pair of pass-rushers in the league over the last two years.
Freeney, who played a decade with Manning in Indianapolis, has 107½ career sacks in 11 seasons, all with the Colts. He had 13½ sacks over the last two seasons.
