Josh Freeman still believes that he can be a top quarterback in this league. He still believes that he is a starting quarterback, but his recent history speaks otherwise. He was benched by a couple of teams last season.
“I still view myself as a starting-caliber quarterback,” Freeman said, via NJ.com. “I love the situation because I have the opportunity to be around a guy that really had a lot of success, year after year and continues to win and get his team to the playoffs consistently. It’s a really, really cool opportunity.”
Being around Manning will get him some time to work on his game, but it won’t get him to see the field any time soon. Manning has that job locked down and he is one of the most durable quarterbacks in the game. Freeman will get real skilled at holding a clipboard and talking into a headset with the Giants. If he is looking for that starting opportunity, it will be when he signs on with a different roster.
