Report: Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman to seek trade


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are losing faith in quarterback Josh Freeman and he has shown that there is plenty of reason for the skepticism about whether or not he can be the quarterback to take this team to the next level.

Add in the fact that the team drafted Mike Glennon earlier this year and Freeman is growing increasingly unhappy in Tampa Bay.

As a result, the quarterback could be seeking a trade.

From Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports:

With the relationship between Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh Freeman and coach Greg Schiano seen by league and team sources as beyond repair, Freeman is likely to ask for a deal ahead of next month’s trade deadline. Schiano, whose tenure already stands at a perilous point despite coaching just 17 NFL games, further alienated the quarterback by revealing why he was absent for a team photo, and the lack of trust between the men has long been no secret in that locker room.

There is one problem.

Freeman is set to become a free agent next offseason and it’s highly unlikely that anyone would be willing to part ways with anything for a quarterback of Freeman’s caliber.

This drama will continue to play out throughout the season, so the Buccaneers could be an interesting team to watch. Perhaps everything could start to come unraveled.
