Josh Freeman Signing With Vikings is Opportunity for Both Parties’ Long-Term Benefit
The Josh Freeman saga is just getting started as the troubled signal-caller went less than a week without a job. Late Sunday night, the Minnesota Vikings signed Freeman to a one-year deal worth $3 million, meaning he has a chance to prove himself this year as the long-term answer under center in Minnesota.
So now all the questions surrounding Christian Ponder‘s injury are starting to get answered. The former first-round pick didn’t play in Week 4 while Matt Cassel gave Minnesota its first win in London, but the Vikings clearly want more options going into the offseason and there’s a strong feeling up north that Freeman will be the starter by Week 7 if not immediately following the Vikings’ bye.
Freeman has a chance to prove he’s not a complete and total waste of talent now, which would open up a lot of doors for him as a free agent in the upcoming offseason after the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills pushed hard to sign him this week. All is not lost for this troubled young signal-caller, but he’s now in a do-or-die situation that could really benefit him and the Vikings in the long-term.
