The story of Josh Freeman's NFL career has not been a happy one.

Freeman was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 17th overall pick in 2009, with the Buccaneers giving the former Kansas State quarterback a five-year, $26 million contract upon his joining.

Freeman didn't get close to receiving all that money and was cut in 2013 after a failed spell in Tampa before moving to the Vikings and on to the Miami Dolphins. However, he may have just played his last ever game...

Final Game?

It is very possible that the former first-rounder played his last game in the National Football League last night.

The 27-year-old Freeman has been on one continuous slide, who passed for 25 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2010, threw for 4,065 yards in 2012, and then found himself out of football in 2014.

Poor Pre-Season

NFL rosters have to be slimmed down to 53 players on Saturday, and the Dolphins will likely keep two quarterbacks, starter Ryan Tannehill and one other. Freeman's chances of being that other are slim-to-none.

Right now, Freeman's future with the Dolphins - the only team who seemed willing to take a chance on him - is grim. Freeman is 10-for-26 passing (38.5 percent), for 167 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions this preseason.

Those stats from the last paragraph were from before last night's game, in which he threw two interceptions. This signals the death knell for Freeman's tenure as an NFL quarterback.
