Buccaneers first-round pick Josh Freeman participated in a NFL.com chat session Saturday and made a startling revelation about recent conversations. The former Kansas State quarterback said he pretty much knew what was coming. "I felt that all along," he wrote. "Even when they picked up Byron Leftwich. It was something they told me -- they told me it was a smokescreen, everybody would think they didn't want a QB. They said they were ready to trade up. I think it worked out great. I was sitting there with my family and enjoying it, and I got to go to the team that I wanted to go to." Coach Raheem Morris indicated that Freeman misspoke. "We talked about that (Sunday) morning," Morris said. "Sometimes quotes are taken out of context. The young man was asked the question and he kind of answered it the wrong way. "Hey, Leftwich called him this morning and told him he's going to put him in a headlock when he gets down here and then after that he's going to put him under his wing and get him ready to go. So, they talked on the phone this morning and I think we're okay."

You know that's exactly what they told Freeman. Dumbass doesn't know any better not to say anything, though.

Yea, I'll bet everyone in the tampa bay front office shit their pants.

I think that speaks volumes as to how prepared some of these guys are for the NFL.

Did anybody think that he would get pass Tampa? I think it was clear as to who wanted him.

Too much Jerry Curl sunk into his scalp and into his brain.

That's just because he's dyslexic. Or, was that the other QB? hmmm.

Exactly.

They should be more worried about him BEATING OUT Leftwich.

Because if he can't, they're in deep, deep trouble.
