Could the Bucs be going QB in this draft?


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers do not plan on extending quarterback Josh Freeman's contract this offseason, reports Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Freeman set franchise records for passing yards (4,065) and touchdowns (27) in 2012, but was wildly inconsistent. He showed flashes of brilliance in the Bucs' 6-4 start that had them in the playoff discussion, but his play disintegrated down the stretch, including two four-interception disasters, as the team went 1-5.The four-year pro will play out his rookie contract in the 2013 season as the team determines if he is its quarterback of the future.

The proverbial lame-duck quarterback was drafted before coach Greg Schiano took over, so there isno inherent loyalty involved. The Bucs also want to avoid a crippling financial mistake a la the New York Jets' $40 million contract extension for quarterback Mark Sanchez.

If Freeman's inconsistency continues to outweigh his athleticism and the positives he brings to the game, the Bucs can move on without repercussion. If he rights the ship, they can either sign him to a new contract or place the franciche tag on him next offseason.

Dominik/Shiano getting their scapegoat ready. If next year goes poorly Schiano can blame Freeman and try to keep his job by selling the prospect of him finally having "his" QB. Freeman is just average, but he is hardly the biggest reason for their collapse this year.

Not surprised at all. Freeman is a interception machine.

So they pull out the same talking point depending on the QB. Where's the article on Matthew Stafford? Shouldn't his contract be up also? Talk about inconsistancy...He spend two years not doing a damn thing, one season where his team is in the play-offs and the next season, 4-13. Now that is some serious inconsistancy.

Honestly might not be the worst back-up for Cam if we lose Anderson.
