Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Josh Freeman’s Job in Jeopady
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman‘s job may be at risk. Freeman is in the last year of his contract and has yet to enter the playoffs. Tampa Bay has so far built its offense around Freeman by acquiring veteran receiver Vincent Jackson, drafting Mike Williams and even a failed attempt with receiver Arrelious Benn. Tampa Bay also made several attempts at the tight end position, including Kellen Winslow Jr. and Dallas Clark, who were released and let go from the roster. But throughout all of this, the Buccaneers have stuck by Freeman the whole time. They drafted North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon in the third round this year, so it would seem like they are preparing for the worst. Glennon should apply pressure on Freeman to perform, but it all depends how the elder player responds to the pressure: positively like Matt Ryan or negatively like Mark Sanchez.
Freeman did, however, show career-high numbers the previous season with over 4,000 passing yards and a passer rating of 81.6. If Freeman stays on pace, he should have his best season yet. The return of All-Pro guards Davin Joseph and Carl Nicks from season-ending injuries should increase Freeman’s pocket protection and will be excellent compared to many other teams in the league. Freeman has been provided an excellent rushing offense as well with Pro-Bowl alternate Doug Martin and now a former face of Madden, Peyton Hillis. Martin had a great rookie year and was even considered to win the Rookie of the Year award. Martin is frequently compared to Pro-Bowl running back Ray Rice. Hillis should serve as a great back up to the future star. It would seem like the talent surrounds Freeman for a breakout season, so if he wants to keep his job, he must at least get a shot at the playoffs.
