Despite previous reports to the contrary, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman is denying that he will ask for a trade away from the team. The Bucs have refused to give Freeman a contract extension, despite the fact that he’s in the final year of his current deal. The team also drafted N.C. State signal-caller Mike Glennon in the 2013 NFL Draft. Freeman claims he has no plans to seek a trade and “if it’s going on I need a new camp.” We can assume that means that if someone in his “camp” is demanding a trade he needs to get rid of them. Freeman was not named a captain for this season and speculation claimed it was because he had missed some meetings. Head coach Greg Schiano has denied that was a reason for it. The Bucs are now 0-2 on the season after an awful performance in a 16-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday. The 25-year-old quarterback completed just 9-of-22 passes for 125 yards against the Saints, with one touchdown and an interception. So far on the season he has completed just 24-of-53 passes for 335 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. That’s a completion percentage of just 45.2. A story also surfaced last week that Freeman had overslept and missed the team’s photo. Basically a picture is emerging of Freeman as an aloof, unfocused, irresponsible guy who hasn’t lived up to expectations. Entering Sunday, Freeman had a career quarterback rating of just 79.6, and a career completion percentage of just 58.6. It’s probably only a matter of time before Freeman gets replaced by Glennon. And if that happens, the split between the two sides is likely to get really ugly.
