Miami Dolphins sign quarterback Josh Freeman

Published 1 Comments

The Miami Dolphins have made another big signing this off-season but the fans may not be best pleased with their newest player.

With Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill impressing last year as the Dolphins mounted a decent play-off charge, they have now added to their depth chart.

The Dolphins have brought in quarterback Josh Freeman on a one year deal which will likely see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2009 first round pick play back up to Tannehill and Matt Moore.

Freeman had been one of the most promising prospects in the league but in recent years has certainly fallen from grace.

After departing the Buccaneers in 2013, Freeman spent the 2013 season with the Minnesota Vikings in his last league appearance.

2014 for Freeman was spent on the practice squad of the New York Giants but he has now made a return to the league with the Dolphins.

Freeman was trending on Twitter shortly after the announcement was made and many fans questioned the signing.

Some were calling upon his very poor last few years which looked back over his disastrous spell in Minnesota two years ago.

Most Dolphins fans chose to reflect on the the promise that Freeman showed in his early years with Tampa Bay.

Freeman threw 25 touchdowns in 2010 and was part of a 10 win team that year before going even better in 2012 and throwing 27 touchdowns.

It didn't last long for Freeman however as he was used as a scapegoat after a disastrous start to 2013.

Another big risk?

The Dolphins have already made headlines this off-season as they signed former Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh in free agency.

The Dolphins didn't just sign Suh, they signed him and made him the highest paid defensive player in the league.

Some saw such a lucrative deal as risky for the Dolphins but only time will tell if it was and if it will help to push them over the line as play-off contenders.
