Josh Freeman wanted to compete for a starting quarterback job at some point soon, but wanted to sit back behind Eli Manning for a little bit to work on his game, but now he has to sit on the free agency market for a little longer after getting released by the team. Freeman was signed on April 21 and is now available for all teams to sign again. Will he get another chance to play in the league or will he struggle to make a roster like Vince Young has struggled to jump on a team.
Freeman has now been released by the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the last season and some change. The reasons for this release are not known, but after a couple of days in the OTAs, the reasoning cannot be that good. He must not have performed well during his time on the field and the team didn’t want to deal with that problem any longer.
Seems pretty crazy that he already has been cut, but it will give him some time to convince some other team that he can make it on the roster. He wasn’t able to win a job over Matt Cassel in Minnesota and Mike Glennon in Tampa Bay, now he is just hoping to get a shot somewhere.
