An indirect free kick is when the kick is unintentional.
Technically, a "free kick" is any kick that is not a scrimmage kick. In other words, any time the ball is put into play by kicking, and the ball is not snapped on a normal scrimmage down, it is a free kick. This includes kickoffs, as well as kicks following a safety or fair-catch. The kick following a safety is unique because it is the only type of free kick where the kicker has the choice of punting the ball or kicking it off a tee. (In fact, they could dropkick it as well.) Because of this, many people mistakenly think that "free kick" means the kicker can choose how to kick the ball, when in fact that is only true of the free kick after a safety. The normal rules for kickoffs apply to all free kicks: The ball must travel 10 yards before the kicking team can recover it (unless first touched by a receiver), and it must not go out of bounds.
Following a safety, the ball can be put in play either by placekick, punt or dropkick. The kicking team may choose which method to use. In college and high school, the kicker may use a tee if he opts to placekick the ball. However, in the NFL a tee is not allowed for a free kick following a safety, so the team would have to employ a holder. Note that these rules only apply to a free kick following a safety. Contrary to popular belief, this is NOT the definition of a free kick in general. Any kick which is not a scrimmage kick is a free kick, including kickoffs and fair-catch kicks.
