Free agent quarterback Josh Freeman didn’t draw much interest in the trade market as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but as a free agent, it’s been a different story.

A handful of teams have made efforts to sign Freeman and reports have leaked suggesting the exiled quarterback will decide upon a new team by tonight.

That team could be the Minnesota Vikings, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

Per Pro Football Talk:

Take two: Vikings are currently the most likely destination for Josh Freeman, per @JayGlazer

Pro Football Talk had a bit more of an explanation on their website:

Per Glazer, Freeman has spoken with coach Leslie Frazier and G.M. Rick Spielman.  Glazer calls Minnesota the “most desirable option” for Freeman.

The Vikings do make some sense considering the iffy quarterback situation, though, Oakland, Jacksonville and Buffalo (and even Cleveland) would all also offer potential starting jobs.

Vikings or not, it sounds like we’re getting very close to a final decision which could be announced within a few hours as Glazer stated Freeman informed him he would decide by tonight.
