    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.

  • Posted: 4/22/2014 3:57pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 4/16/2014 3:01pm ET

    Updating a previous item, the New York Giants agreed to an undisclosed one-year deal with QB Josh Freeman. He could receive extra snaps this summer as QB Eli Manning (ankle) recovers from ankle surgery.

    Huddle Up: Freeman is not that far removed from being a decent NFL quarterback, though he lost his job in Tampa Bay last year and flamed out famously in his only action with the Vikings--strangely enough, against the Giants. With Manning slowed during OTAs Freeman should get plenty of reps, and he's at minimum a solid insurance policy and a backup with upside.

    Free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Vikings) was late for numerous meetings in his roughly three months with the Minnesota Vikings, according to four people with knowledge of the situation. A third player said Freeman was often the last player to the facility.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was thrown into the fire against the Giants without full knowledge of the playbook; he didn't see the field after that, and perhaps his... uh, lack of attention to detail is one of the reasons. Doesn't sound like he's in the Vikings' plans for 2014, which speaks volumes about the former first-rounder as Minnesota has a gaping hole at the position.

  • Posted: 12/27/2013 11:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman said Friday, Dec. 27, that he would consider re-signing with the team next season. 'I definitely have interest in coming back, for sure,' Freeman said. 'It's a great organization, a great team.'

    Huddle Up: The Vikes apparently don't share the sentiment as the QB has had one start -- his 20-of-53, 190-yard disaster vs. the Giants in Week 7 -- and hasn't sniffed the field since.

  • Posted: 10/30/2013 10:42pm ET

    Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings have not announced a starting quarterback for Week 9, but ESPN's Ed Werder expects that the team will turn to QB Josh Freeman (concussion) again after QB Christian Ponder was unimpressive in place of Freeman in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Monte Kiffin's struggling defense has allowed four 400-yard passers through eight games. It's highly doubtful Freeman will make it five on Sunday. The Cowboys' last ranked pass defense gets a break against Minnesota.

  • Posted: 10/24/2013 8:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman (concussion) has cleared part of the league's protocol for concussions, but he will be inactive in Week 8, with QB Christian Ponder getting the starting nod against the Green Bay Packers. Ponder tossed three touchdowns against the Packers last season.

    Huddle Up: Ponder will be be back in the Vikings' saddle for the first time since Week 3, and while it's nothing to raise a fantasy fuss about, it has to be better news for the Vikes' pass-catchers after Freeman's disaster of a debut on Monday night.

  • Posted: 10/23/2013 1:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Josh Freeman (concussion) has a concussion, and the team is preparing as if Freeman will not play Week 8. QB Christian Ponder will start if Freeman is unable to play.

    Huddle Up: This is actually a good thing for the offense (not the injury, but the fact Freeman likely won't start), though not by much. Freeman was simply not ready to step in and start after one week of practice.

  • Posted: 10/22/2013 11:23pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said QB Josh Freeman will start in the team's Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers

    Huddle Up: Freeman had a disastrous debut to be sure, but the Vikings aren't shelling out $2 mil for only one game. At 1-5, the Vikes aren't going anywhere fast, so they're going to get a long look at what they have.

  • Posted: 10/22/2013 12:49am ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Josh Freeman made his first start for the team in Week 7 against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 21. He completed 20 of his 53 pass attempts for 190 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.

    Huddle Up: Freeman was brutal, on a different page than his receivers and off-target all night, completing only 37.7 percent of his passes. That quashed the fantasy hopes of those starting any of the Minnesota pass-catchers and even RB Adrian Peterson. The Vikings scored their only points on Marcus Sherels' 86-yard first-quarter punt return, but look for the Vikes to write this off as a rough first outing and give Freeman another start or two.

  • Posted: 10/7/2013 10:50am ET

    Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Vikings agreed with free-agent QB Josh Freeman on a one-year, $3 million deal. Freeman's contract doesn't including a clause preventing the team from placing the franchise tag on him after the season. The franchise tag would be worth more than $15 million next season.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings didn't bring Freeman in to be a backup; he'll get a shot at starting, maybe not this week but in the very near future. As for franchising him, if he plays well and turns the Vikings' season around it's possible they could view him as their quarterback of the future and franchise him while working on a long-term deal. However, let's let Freeman take a snap in purple before wondering if the Vikings will commit $15 million to him.

  • Posted: 10/5/2013 8:59pm ET

    The Oakland Raiders have expressed interest in free-agent QB Josh Freeman (Buccaneers) but will take their time in their pursuit of him.

    Huddle Up: Freeman has ties to Raiders' offensive coordinator Greg Olson but if he signs in Oakland it will be just to back up Terrelle Pryor for now. Freeman will almost certainly have no fantasy value for the rest of the season.

  • Posted: 10/3/2013 5:49pm ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released QB Josh Freeman on Thursday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: It quickly became apparent a divorce was imminent after the Bucs failed to find a trade partner for the former first-round pick. Three teams -- the Browns, Jaguars and Cardinals -- reportedly have said they're not interested, but definitely expect somebody to give the FA Freeman a shot.

  • Posted: 10/2/2013 12:44am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano denied leaking confidential medical information to the media about QB Josh Freeman on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: Remember back to Week 12 last season when the Bucs entered a home showdown vs. the Falcons at 6-4 and Freeman was in the midst of a revival season with 21 TDs and 7 interceptions? Wow, how times have changed. Since then, Tampa is 1-9 and Freeman has thrown 8 TDs, 13 picks, lost his starting job and now wants to be released or traded.

  • Posted: 9/30/2013 10:47pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman is a stage one participant in the National Football League's drug program, but he is not one strike away from a suspension despite being subject to random testing, according to league and player sources with knowledge of his status. Freeman has obtained a temporary use exemption for a prescription drug that normally would be on the banned list, the sources said Monday, Sept. 30.

    Huddle Up: Hmmmm, perhaps this is a reason why we haven't heard about Freeman generating much interest on the trade market.
