The Vikings have signed former Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman to what appears to be a 1 year deal. Freeman was let go after 4 years in Tampa and a recent ugly feud with the Bucs.
Freeman who is only 25 has had a few up and down years with the Bucs. Over his career he is a 58% passer and has racked up 80 touchdowns and 60 Ints.
For the Vikings it is well worth the flier for a team that is lacking a reliable quarterback option. Freeman has showed enough potential to give him a 1 year deal and see what comes of it. Worst case Freeman bombs and the Vikings need to look elsewhere. Really, it is a perfect situation for both Freeman and the Vikings.
Look for the Vikings to get Freeman into the starting lineup sooner than later, they are paying him a good amount and i’m guessing it isn’t to be a back-up. If Freeman can come in and show he is worth moving forward with, Minnesota could very well offer him another contract.
It will be interesting to see how the Vikings move forward with the oth...
