Should the Minnesota Vikings be cautious with Josh Freeman after Bucs MRSA outbreak?


Right now everything’s a mess for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

First they released their former starting quarterback Josh Freeman, now there is a MRSA outbreak that’s taking players out of action left and right. Now that Freeman’s in Minnesota, what should the Vikings do to avoid a possibly break out in their locker room?

MRSA is something that is contagious. You have to be careful how you clean yourself and make sure if you have any open wounds, you tend to them quickly or else you’re going to have a serious problem.

This MRSA out break is even putting Sunday’s game between the Buccaneers and the  Eagles at risk. This is a problem this league doesn’t need right now, nobody wants to have to deal with this.

The outbreak has reached former kick Lawrence Tynes, Carl Nicks and Tom Crabtree have been the only Buccaneers so far who have dealt with this staph infection. It has to be a scary thing for the Vikings to be hearing about right now.

Put Freeman in a plastic bubble and call it a day.
