The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally granted Josh Freeman his wish last week and released him. Multiple reports suggested that the Buccaneers contacted all 31 other teams around the league in order to strike a deal for a trade, but with every other team knowing he would eventually be released, coupled with his remaining salary, the Buccaneers could not find a trade partner.
Freeman’s agent reported that his client had been contacted by 10 teams around the league. Teams such as the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills were believed to be interested for the five-year veteran heading to free agency after this season.
The Minnesota Vikings stepped up and made Freeman an offer. Reported as a one-year deal worth $3 million, Freeman is now making more than Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel combined, the other two quarterbacks on the current roster.
It’s being speculated that Ponder might be heading for the season ending injured reserve list. Ponder is dealing with fractured ri...

I read a post at Grantland when Josh Freeman was benched that painted the picture of a quarterback that was teeming with talent, but was so misused and was neglected the opportunity to develop that his career has fallen apart. Bill Barnwell brought up some interesting points and had good observations on Freeman’s career, that I think all Vikings fans should check out.
Just three days after Josh Freeman was released by the only team he’s ever known, the fifth-year quarterback has reportedly signed with the Minnesota Vikings.
NBC broke the news during their Sunday Night Football broadcast just after the completion of the 49ers-Texans game.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed the news minutes later on Twitter. Freeman will reportedly be signed to...
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally pulled the trigger on the move that I suggested this past week, just release QB Josh Freeman. Multiple media outlets reported that the Buccaneers front office was contacting all 31 other franchises in order to orchestrate a trade for the player once thought of as the franchise quarterback the team has been searching for years. No team was interested...
While there is much speculation about where former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman might land, why not throw another team into the mix, the San Francisco 49ers. Why not? Freeman is linked with rumors to possibly be headed to the Bay area with the connection between himself and Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olsen. Why wouldn’t the Niners be interested?
Would they pass...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -- Minnesota's starting quarterback this week will be Matt Cassel or Christian Ponder, not Josh Freeman.
Beyond Sunday, there's no guarantee.
The Vikings were finalizing Freeman's contract Monday. He didn't make it in time for practice but was scheduled to arrive later in the day. Coach Leslie Frazier said there's not enough time for...
Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said Josh Freeman won’t start at quarterback this Sunday when the Carolina Panthers travel to Minnesota. The 25-year-old Freeman signed with Minnesota three days after getting clipped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 3. Freeman struggled mightily this season over three games as a Buc and completed an abysmal 45.7 percent of his 94 attempts...
Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Washington all had byes in Week-5. The four teams that didn't play this weekend have a combined 2-14 record, but the week off may have been just what the doctor ordered and not only for the obvious reasons.
Yes, Minnesota took the weekend to evaluate their quarterback play and then make a run for Josh Freeman -- who they successfully signed...
Josh Freeman or Christian Ponder? Hmm, that’s tough. Christian Ponder or Josh Freeman? Sounds like a sink-or-sink opportunity for the Minnesota Vikings. And that’s ironic because Vikings are known for their prowess in shipping. Josh Freeman has agreed to one-year deal worth $3M with the Vikings, according to Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports 1.
So what happens now? Has anyone seen...

The Buffalo Bills were also affected by Josh Freeman signing with the Vikings.
The Bills made a late push to acquire Freeman, but were unsuccessful. With E.J. Manuel out several weeks with a knee injury, Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bills will start practice squad member Thad Lewis at quarterback on Sunday against the Bengals.
Bills HC Doug Marrone told WGR 550 in Buffalo...
If your head is spinning from all the events going on at One Bucs Place, you have company. Several counties that make up the gulf coast worth of company!
But if your looking for a solution, or resolution to the events, well that comes in 5 days when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The result, both the score and the way the team plays, will...
