Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman told 620 WDAE’s “Ron and Ian Show” that he’s not worried about his contract going forward.
“I’m excited about getting this year going,” Freeman said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “It has nothing to do with…a contract year, finding out, oh, is he signed for this? What happened? I know God has got a plan for me, it’s all going to work out in the end. If I just give it the best I’ve got regardless…if I give it the best I’ve got and the Buccaneers say, “Ah, we don’t think he can play for us,’ at the end of the year and every other team in the NFL does and I end up wherever I end up doing whatever, I’ll be content because I’ll know I gave it the best I had.”
Freeman said that his uncertain future in Tampa hasn’t been a distraction to him.
“I get this question a lot and, yeah, I’ve got stuff weighing on my mind, but very little has to do with the contract year,” Freeman said. “Yeah, it’s a big year and professionally it’s the biggest year I’ve had from that standpoint. But I’m telling you, when I play the best football, it’s when I’m just relaxed and I’m being myself.
“My identity is set. I know who I am. Come hell or high water, trust me, dude, we’re going to win some games this year. The Bucs are going to be a force. I’m pumped up about that.”
Freeman says he’s confident going into this season.
“I’m excited. There’s no added pressure, no nervousness, no anxiety,” Freeman said. “Man, I know who I am, my guys know who I am, we know what it’s all about. I’m pumped up. There’s no anxiety, it’s all excitement.
“But I’m telling you man, it’s good enough. More than good enough.”

Josh Freeman has a tendency to be hopefully vague when talking to the media. Positive goals, team-centered motivation, and future aspirations usually dominate reporters’ notes whenever Freeman takes a Q&A. But on 620 WDAE’s Ron & Ian show Friday morning, the debatable franchise quarterback may have wished he worded his sentences a little better–even if we all knew...
Josh Freeman continues to receive support from the Buccaneers’ coaching staff and why not? We all are aware of Freeman’s franchise records he set last season but still many believe — outside of those within the organization — that he is not the quarterback the Bucs should have under center for years to come.

The Bucs are not experiencing any off-the-field issues with their players which is a good sign. But it appears they will still have to be involved some kind of legal issues with their sales department. Yes you read that right. In a report from Tampa Tribune’s Joe Henderson, the Bucs may have been a tad-bit too aggressive with their sales tactics on trying to sell people on purchasing...
Darrelle Revis is looking forward to joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs secondary, which was once an eye sore, is not potentially the best secondary in the NFL.
Revis will team with Mark Barron and hard-hitting former 49ers safety Dashon Goldson to bring some physicality and ball hawking to the Buccaneers secondary.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh freeman isn't sounding too worried about the team signing him to an extension that will keep him aboard beyond 2013.
While the Bucs see a lot potential in Freeman, he doesn't quite instill the most confidence with his erratic play. He's hoping to change some minds in his contract year with the team.

One of NFL analyst Warren Sapp's favorite targets of late has been Michael Strahan, and he was back at it again, unfavorably comparing Strahan to Simeon Rice.
Warren has no problem stating his opinion. Warren Sapp has no problem sticking up for anyone that played with him as a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers championship defense.
And if former New York Giants defensive Michael Strahan gets dissed again when the the first two sentences mix, then so be it.

There isn't any love lost between Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan.
On Thursday, Sapp, who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this August, took a shot at Strahan, who didn't make the cut for Canton, saying former Buccaneers teammate Simeon Rice was better than the ex-Giant.
"Nobody ever talks about Simeon (Rice)," Sapp told the Tampa Tribune. "Simeon...
