Free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Buccaneers) reportedly has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins. Financial terms were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Freeman, the former first-round pick who flamed out with the Bucs and Vikings, is getting another NFL shot, presumably to challenge the recently re-signed Matt Moore for the Dolphins' No. 2 job. None of this, though, will really matter fantasy-wise unless starter Ryan Tannehill goes down with an injury.

Free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Giants) will work out with former head coach Jon Gruden next week and quarterback guru Terry Shea the following week as he looks to put his career back on track.
Huddle Up: Freeman has failed a pair of opportunities--in Minnesota and New York--since being kicked to the curb by the Buccaneers, and in both situations Freeman's work ethic was called into question. So it's good to see him taking the initiative to do some extra work in hopes of getting another shot at the NFL. Best let him work his way back onto a roster before looking to him for any fantasy assistance.

The New York Giants cut QB Josh Freeman Friday, May 30.
Huddle Up: The Giants have Eli Manning and a guy behind him in Ryan Nassib that they'd like to develop, so there simply weren't any snaps available for Freeman. He's now two teams removed from being a first-round pick of the Bucs; we'll see if there's another team desperate enough for quarterback help that they're willing to take on a reclamation project like Freeman.

QB Josh Freeman, recently signed by the New York Giants, said he still views himself as a starting-caliber quarterback.
Huddle Up: Freeman only has had 2 seasons out of 5 with a QB rating higher than 75 and more TD passes than interceptions, and is going to have to prove to his third team in 2 seasons that his down times are in the rear-view mirror.
