NFL Free Agency 2014: Oakland Raiders ‘looking at’ signing Josh Freeman


The Oakland Raiders have passed up on most of the depressed quarterback market in free agency, and that may be the smartest thing they’ve done in a while. They’ve been taking flak for their non-deal with Rodger Saffold and their lack of activity overall in free agent despite being flush with cap space.

One player they may bring in is Josh Freeman, who failed to latch on wit the Buccaneers or Vikings but may use the Raiders as his last chance to shine. According to Albert Breet from NFL Network, the Raiders are indeed looking into signing Freeman this offseason.

Regardless of what they do in the draft, it’s likely they take a veteran quarterback in free agency. The only thing is, there are far better options that Freeman, even if the connection of his old offensive coordinator is there in Oakland. Freeman’s best years were spent under Greg Olsen, but that doesn’t mean he’ll shine again.

Still, if he comes cheap, the former first-round pick may end up being a decent option if he finally develops.

    Since theres a connection with olsen freeman could actually land in oakland but shaub is the man they want, id like to get a qb in the draft but we may not get to ink a top three man,id take vick and be happy with him the most but raiders prolly dont like his age thats the problem

    Josh …a decent pick up for the raiders if this happens fills the gap for a few years until they get better.

    Pick this guy up for a few years and see what happens… He is still young and with the right supporting cast can be more effective than anything else we have.
