"Two salty hunters, one half-angel kid and dude that just came back from the dead again. Team Free Will 2.0"

Team Free Will is a nickname made up by Dean after time traveling back from 1978 to 2010.

At the time, the team consisted only of "one ex-blood junkie, one drop-out with six bucks to his name, and Mr. Comatose", which were Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, and Castiel, respectively. The nicknames were based on Sam's former demon blood addiction, possibly Dean's uselessness in the normal world and Castiel's state of unconsciousness, as a result from time travelling.

Dean did not use the name of this team for a number of years, though he continued to fight for free will and object any outside force that tried to control him or his teammates. In 2017, when Castiel began to doubt his own importance, Dean reminded him that he, Sam and Dean were members of Team Free Will.

After Castiel's resurrection, Dean declared Team Free Will 2.0 to be "two salty hunters, one half-angel kid and a dude who just came back from the dead, again"
