The Oakland Raiders have been rumored to be potential suitors for free agent quarterback Josh Freeman and insider Scott Bair may have just thrown fuel on that fire.
Freeman, who spent last season split between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings was absolutely awful when on the field, which probably doesn’t have Raider Nation feeling very good considering Bair believes the former Kansas State product will be Oakland’s starting quarterback for the 2014 season.
The CSN Bay Area scribe was holding his weekly chat and when asked who he felt would be under center for Oakland for the upcoming season, he didn’t hesitate in suggesting Freeman.
Comment From Telegraph Hill Season opening starting QB is…
Scott Bair: Josh Freeman.
For what it’s worth, Bair suggests he’s just going from his gut – but he’s a reporter with very close ties to the team, so his opinion/view shouldn’t be thrown by the wayside.
Bair goes on to suggest Oakland was very interested in Freeman this season, but wasn’t able to strike a deal with the veteran once he was released by Tampa.
