Ever since Josh Freeman was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there has been a lot of media buzz. There are also a few other teams that are interested in signing the struggling QB.

The list reportedly includes teams like Minnesota, Green Bay, Buffalo, and San Francisco, but the top of the list is still the Oakland Raiders. Apparently, there are reports that the Raiders just upped the ante on Freeman, and are really trying to push for the former Kansas State quarterback.

The Oakland Raiders have reportedly said that if they sign Freeman, he will get the starting job behind center, via Sports Illustrated.

From the article:

NFL.com’s Mike Silver reports that the Raiders are the one team that would be ready to make him a starter, which makes a bit of sense. Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Olson was Freeman’s quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay from 2009 through ’11. Freeman was inconsistent under Olson, but he did throw for 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions in 2010.

Freeman will have to seriously think about the situation he wants to get himself into when choosing his next team to play for. He can either sign to be the primary QB with a team like Oakland, or a temporary replacement in places like Minnesota and Buffalo. Or he could go a different route altogether and choose to play under Aaron Rodgers or Colin Kaepernick to work on his mechanics and become a better quarterback.

    I just can’t see this happening. If it does, it makes my decision easier about not buying season tickets next year .
