Tampa Bay Buccaneers might make quarterback Josh Freeman inactive

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers weren’t happy with Josh Freeman‘s results on the field, resulting in his benching. Now they might be frustrated with his off field results.

Freeman, who did not get approval from the Buccaneers organization for an interview with ESPN where he suggested he wanted to be traded, may now be ‘disciplined’ by being named an inactive during their Sunday game against the Arizona Cardinals.


One night after his unauthorized interview with ESPN in which he said he wants to be traded, Josh Freeman may be demoted again by the Buccaneers.

The team is considering making Freeman the inactive third quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Bucs, despite demoting Freeman had said earlier in the week he would remain the backup, but now that’s in question.

Talk about a murky and unhealthy situation. And boy – did it ever escalate quickly. From the ‘captain status’ vote to the missed photoshoot to the poor play, it just seemed to snowball.

If Freeman is named an inactive, former Detroit Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky would be the backup quarterback.
