Description: The Giants cut QB Josh Freeman on Friday.
Insight: Freeman didn't even make it to training camp with New York. He's experienced a rapid downfall that began in Week 15 of 2012. Including that game, he's completed 48.8 percent of his passes and recorded a 4/13 TD/INT ratio in his last seven NFL games.
 
4/16/2014 12:38:00 PM
Description: The Giants have agreed to terms with Josh Freeman on a one-year contract, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.
Insight: Freeman will compete with Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib for the backup job. Freeman had an abysmal .429 completion percentage, 761 yards, two touchdowns and four picks in four starts last year (0-4). He was released by the Buccaneers and only made one start with the Vikings, a Monday Night disaster against the G-Men in which he went 20-of-53 for 190 yards.

Insight: We're not sure what happened to Freeman. Once considered one of the most promising young quarterbacks in the league, Freeman's career has gone into a complete free-fall over the last several months. He was exiled from Tampa Bay before signing with the Vikings and falling all the way back to third on the quarterback depth chart by season's end. His days as a starting quarterback in this league could be over if he doesn't get his act together soon.
 
11/3/2013 11:13:00 AM
Description: Minnesota will make Josh Freeman a healthy inactive in Week 9 against Dallas, according to profootballtalk.com.
Insight: Freeman is completely recovered from his concussion symptoms but the team will start Christian Ponder for the second straight game, with Matt Cassel backing him up. Adrian Peterson is the only Viking worth starting in fantasy leagues.
 
10/30/2013 9:25:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Ed Werder says he is expecting the Vikings to start QB Josh Freeman Sunday against Dallas.
Insight: Christian Ponder was predictably terrible Sunday night against the Packers, and the Vikings want to evaluate Freeman to see if they have anything in him. While Freeman can't possible be any worse than he was in Week 7 against the Giants -- he completed 20-of-53 for 190 yards with one pick -- the Cowboys D/ST still is the top fantasy option this week for owners who stream defenses.
 
10/25/2013 2:00:00 PM
Description: Vikings QB Josh Freeman suffered a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Giants and has already been ruled out for Week 8.
Insight: Christian Ponder was getting reps with the first team at practice and will start in Freeman's place Sunday against the Packers. He can't do any worse.
 
10/23/2013 12:46:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Vikings QB Josh Freeman suffered a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Giants.
Insight: Christian Ponder was getting reps with the first team at practice on Wednesday and would be the favorite to start in Freeman's place Sunday against the Packers. Neither one is a viable fantasy option.
 
10/22/2013 7:06:00 PM
Description: Even though he completed just 20-of-53 passes for 190 yards Monday against the Giants, Josh Freeman will get another start for the Vikings in Week 8 against the Packers.
Insight: The numbers don't do justice as to just how terrible Freeman was in his first Vikings start. He should improve with more practice time in the Vikings system but shouldn't be near fantasy lineups Sunday night against Green Bay, even in two-QB leagues.
 
10/16/2013 3:08:00 PM
Description: Josh Freeman will get the start at quarterback Monday night against the Giants.
Insight: Monday will be Freeman's Vikings debut. Freeman was awful playing for Tampa Bay earlier this season and that was with better receiving weapons than the ones he has in Minnesota. He's not a recommended fantasy play even against a porous Giants secondary.
 
10/13/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Vikings newly signed quarterback Josh Freeman is inactive for Week 6.
Insight: We expected Matt Cassel to start with Christian Ponder hurting and Freeman new to the playbook, but all bets are off for Week 7.
 
10/7/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: The Vikings have signed quarterback Josh Freeman.
Insight: As if the Vikings QB situation wasn't muddled enough. We still expect Matt Cassel to start in Week 6 with Christian Ponder hurting and Freeman new to the playbook, but all bets are off for Week 7.
 
10/3/2013 3:08:00 PM
Description: The Buccaneers finally parted ways with quarterback Josh Freeman on Thursday. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: It appears Freeman will hit the free agent market a bit earlier than expected. It's an embarrassing end to what once looked like a promising chapter in the Buccaneers' history. Freeman shouldn't have trouble catching on with another team but finding a starting job, especially after what has transpired over the last month, won't be as easy to come by.
 
9/29/2013 1:43:00 PM
Description: Josh Freeman wants out of Tampa Bay at all costs. He's open to being released if the Buccaneers can't find a trade partner in the near future. SOURCE: Jay Glazer, Fox Sports
Insight: Freeman has fallen behind Mike Glennon and Dan Orlovsky on the team's quarterback depth chart. It appears that Freeman, who was set to become a free agent anyway after the season, has played his final game as a Buccaneer.
 
Cold9/29/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman is inactive Sunday against Arizona.
Insight: If there was any doubt that Freeman is done in Tampa Bay, this should erase it. Bucs coach Greg Schiano doesn't even want him as a second-stringer Sunday.
 
Cold9/25/2013 7:31:00 PM
Description: When discussing quarterback Josh Freeman's trade value, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said the Buccaneers would probably "take anything for him at this point."
Insight: Freeman's trade value has never been lower. Not only has he been a distraction in the locker room with his immaturity but he's also statistically been one of the worst quarterbacks in the league this season. Freeman, who will become a free agent this offseason, is owed $8.43 million in 2013. Several teams in need of a quarterback including Cleveland and Jacksonville have already said they aren't interested.
 
Cold9/25/2013 9:59:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman has been benched in favor of rookie backup Mike Glennon.
Insight: Freeman's completion percentage is a career-worst 45.7 with two touchdowns and three interceptions. His 59.3 quarterback rating through three games is equally disheartening. Glennon can hardly do worse.
 
Cold9/22/2013 6:30:00 PM
Description: Josh Freeman has been pitiful this season. After going 19-for-41 on Sunday, his completion percentage now sits at 45.7 for the season.
Insight: His 59.3 quarterback rating through three games is equally disheartening. Tampa Bay is off to a nightmare start and with three more games against Atlanta and New Orleans (not to mention a date with powerhouse San Francisco in Week 15), it doesn't look like things are going to get much better. At this point, blowing it up Cleveland Browns style might be the way to go.
 
9/15/2013 11:28:00 AM
Description: According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, there is a "growing disconnect" and "some real tension" between Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano and Josh Freeman.
Insight: Freeman is not happy that Schiano publicly revealed that he was late for a team photo and the captain vote. At this point it's clear the team doesn't consider Freeman its QB of the future. The Bucs didn't offer him a contract extension and drafted Mike Glennon in the 2013 NFL Draft after Freeman completed just 54.8 percent of his passes and threw nine picks in the final three games.
 
9/12/2013 3:41:00 PM
Description: According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said QB Josh Freeman overslept and missed a team meeting last Monday and has been late for other things.
Insight: Freeman says he overslept for the team photo. That's not how you get on Schiano's good side. Tampa Bay did not give Freeman a contract extension, forcing him into a prove-it season, and he also was not voted as a team captain by his teammates. If Freeman's play doesn't improve, rookie Mike Glennon could be under center by midseason.
 
5/19/2013 2:31:00 PM
Description: According to the National Football Post, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano thought Mike Glennon was the best quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft and said he "can play quickly" if he is needed.
Insight: Tampa Bay drafted Glennon in the third round. The team did not give Josh Freeman a long-term extension this offseason, so we already know it isn't sold on him as the long-term answer at QB. Glennon could force the issue with a strong summer and preseason, much like Russell Wilson, the man he succeeded at NC State, did with Seattle last year.
