The Buccaneers had contact with every team about trying to trade the disgruntled QB but couldn't find any takers and opted to release him on Thursday.

Wow!! Easy something is really going on with Freeman off/on the field, and/or Schiano is crazy, and will be fired not too long after.

You would think. 

 

As bad as the Jags are, and there was a report just yesterday that Gabbert was on his way out.  That they'd take a chance on Freeman.  (In fact during the Jags/Colts game they showed a plane carrying a banner, "The Golden Calf of Bristol, How could it hurt?")

 

I guess the Bucs feel that they can get a back-up QB cheaper than they are paying Freeman.  I wonder what Vinny's doing these days?  LOL

It's a possibility. But they seem to have their sights set on tanking for Teddy. With Freeman if he can find his 2012 form they will have a good QB, but it is debatable as to how good and how far he could take them.

I guess getting Freeman would allow them to use their high value picks to build a team around him. That could work. But I think somewhere like Oakland could be a destination since his old OC is there, or perhaps the vikings who need an upgrade in the passing game.

One of the media talking heads (Clayton, I think) said that the Jags (as well as the Browns) didn't have much interest in him, as far as the trade market went. Of course, this could change now that he was released.

If I was a Jacksonville fan I would be happy to get him.  He's not going to turn your season around but could get you a handful of wins which they desperately need right now.  Jaguar fans have to be near suicidal right now.

Freeman could bide his time a little. I think Tennessee could be a darkhorse if Locker's rehab has snags in it.

Wow...Blaine Gabbert has yet to prove himself as a QB. Freeman gets dumbed after having a bad season, just like Sanchez. Hmmmmm

Veteran NFL QBs aren't in demand as much as they used to be. Teams want a young guy who they can mold and shape their tendencies. Freeman has some talents and is probably a better QB than some NFL Starters but the finances and the risk just won't entice many teams.

 

The Raiders will prefer Pryor over Freeman. The Bills will prefer Manuel over Freeman.

 

Freeman needs to become humble and keep working hard. With injuries he could get an opportunity and if he makes the most of his opportunity who knows what will happen. Just last night Hoyer and Manuel were injured. Teams will be calling. He has to get rid of the immature image and show he's willing to be a part of a team.

So you're assuming that he's not "humble" based on what? Amazing one ever heard of him not being "humble" before the team decided they no longer wanted him. And is the word "humble" only used on certain players? how come we never make the statements about humility for QBs like Luck or Brady or Brees. Are we to assume that they are "humble?"
