Freeney and Mathis Think the Lockout Isn’t Going to Last

A couple of high profile Colts seem to think that the lockout isn’t going to last, and that there will be football in 2011 and that the lockout is going to end soon.

“I’m going to prepare like there’s going to be a season,” Freeney said. “I don’t think the owners are missing anything now because there are no games being played. Come August, September, that’s when the anxiety will set in because that’s when we’re supposed to be on it.”

Freeney spoke while surveying several hundred blue-shirted youths hustling through drills during the steamy fourth edition of the AAA Insurance Dwight Freeney Football Camp. It might not have been the only youth camp going Wednesday, but it probably was the only one with two Pro Bowl defensive ends working the field.

Robert Mathis and Freeney are of the same mind with the NFL owners’ lockout about to enter its fourth month.

“I think everybody just wants to make it more dramatic than it has to be,” Mathis said. “The sport of football is too important to everybody, not just players and owners but to the people, fans, people who work the games.

“It’s just too important to let egos get in the way.”
