Josh Freeman is a former first-round pick that had a starting job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but his time came to an unfortunate end when his relationship with the team turned sour and he ultimately was released by the team.

Freeman then signed on with the Minnesota Vikings, where he was hoping to earn a starting gig once again, but he immediately struggled in his first appearance with the team and he has not returned to the starting line up since. In fact, Freeman has been inactive for a number of games since his miserable performance as the team’s starter.

While it would be understandable to see Freeman unhappy with how things played out in Minnesota, he remains level-headed moving forward.

He’s coming along,” a league source told Pro Football Talk.  “That position and everything that goes into being successful just takes time and reps and that’s what this last month has been about.”

Freeman hopes to play in December and prove to the team that he can be their quarterback of the future.

If the team doesn’t believe in him, then the Vikings will be in position to draft a man they believe in early in the 2014 NFL Draft.
