ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting this morning that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched quarterback Josh Freeman. Schefter tweets, “Bucs have made the move: Benching Josh Freeman for Mike Glennon, per league source.” There has been no official announcement from the Buccaneers organization at this time however.
As I wrote on Monday, the Buccaneers had nothing to lose by making the move. The playoffs are out of the question unless the team makes a remarkable turnaround. Josh Freeman will likely not re-sign with the Buccaneers next season and Greg Schiano might be playing for his job moving forward despite being under contract for the next three seasons.
