Josh Freeman - Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Football News

The first of the five quarterbacks and the one at most risk is Josh Freeman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs have started 0-2 in a tough NFC South division and already it seems their playoff hopes are down to a wildcard at best.

Freeman's performances have been less-than-stellar (he's completed just 45% of his pass attempts) but this has been attributed to a growing rift with head coach, Greg Schiano, who may find himself out of a job if he's unable to get results going the right way soon.

According to NFL reports, Freeman is supposed to be extremely annoyed with the way Schiano has handled team affairs, especially the public calling out of Freeman for being late and supposedly rigging votes so that Freeman wasn't made captain.

Although Freeman's camp deny requesting a trade, rookie quarterback, Mike Glennon is viewed as 'Schiano's guy' and Schiano wanting to fast-track him into the side could be why he's let things get so tense between himself and Freeman.

With several teams looking for stability at QB, Freeman offers good trade value. He's in the final year of his rookie contract and anywhere he does go, he'd be playing to justify a big contract next season.
