Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t extend QB Josh Freeman’s contract

Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t extend QB Josh Freeman’s contract

Hyped by on January 7, 2013 Website:

Despite setting career marks in passing yards and touchdowns, a report this morning suggests that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will not extend the contract of QB Josh Freeman. At mid-season, Freeman appeared poised to take his game to the next level, leading the Buccaneers offense that was scoring points at a franchise record race. By the end of the season, Freeman regressed, throwing four interceptions in two games while the Buccaneers lost five of their last six.

Freeman will be entering the final year of his rookie contract and needs to show more consistency on the field. First-year head coach told reporters after the regular season that he plans to bring in a quarterback this offseason to challenge Freeman moving forward. The Tampa back-up in 2012 was Dan Orlovsky, but Orlovsky only attempted seven passes last season and is not considered as a threat to challenge Freeman for the starting job.
