Bucs not planning to extend Josh Freeman
 
http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...mans-contract/

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, the Bucs wonít be extending Freemanís contract, which expires after the 2013 season. And as Stroud explains it, the decision not to sign Freeman to a new deal could be part of a plan by coach Greg Schiano, who inherited Freeman, to get his own quarterback. And Freeman may change Schianoís mind only by playing so well this season that Freeman leaves the Bucs with no other option than to use the franchise tag or sign him to a long-term deal.

One possibility would be to apply the non-exclusive tag and to see if anyone is willing to sign Freeman to an offer sheet and give up a pair of first-round picks. That would enable the Bucs to pull a reverse Keyshawn, giving up a player and getting two first-round picks 14 years after they gave up two first-round picks to get Keyshawn Johnson from the Jets.

The Bucs likely would settle for less, since the alternative will be to let Freeman walk away.

Sign me up. Guy is from KC and only 24 years old.

:hmmm:

Mr. Flopnuts 01-07-2013 07:22 AM

Wow. This one intrigues me.

Mother****erJones 01-07-2013 07:22 AM

Hmmm..maybe he's a trade option for KC. Sign me up for a 2nd rounder

Deberg_1990 01-07-2013 07:22 AM

He strikes as pretty meh.....

Freeman is a decent QB, from the KC area too if I remember right?

Ha ha, right.

I'd still want them to draft a QBOTF but, there's a move I could live with

Molitoth 01-07-2013 07:25 AM

Meh. I would NOT be impressed with him as a #1 option unless Geno Smith/Tyler Wilson was competing with him for the starting job. This would create some good competition and leave us with a good backup.

ROFL

Dudes been mediocre at best and the Chiefs have the #1 pick to get their own QB and some people are drooling over this kid to be a Chief.

NO!

Al Bundy 01-07-2013 07:29 AM

There is a reason we have not extended him. His footwork is poor and he has some accuracy "issues".

Guru 01-07-2013 07:29 AM

Not for 2 first round picks. No way.

NO!

Drafting Geno & getting Freeman > Cassel, Quinn & Stanzi.
