NFL trade rumors suggest a Josh Freeman trade could come from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers soon. According to a report on Friday (Sept. 27), the former starting quarterback doesn't seem opposed to the idea. With five weeks until the league deadline for making a deal, there are also several other franchises that could use a big improvement at the position. The only question is whether those teams feel that this is their guy.
Speaking about the prospects of being traded and whether he would welcome a change of scenery, it almost seemed like he talked himself into it. Freeman stated, "You know, I don't for a number of reasons. But the bottom line is, if you want things to change, something has got to change. At the end of the day, yes, I think that moving forward, that might be, that is going to be probably the best option."
With Mike Glennon taking over as the starting quarterback for Tampa Bay, these NFL trade rumors also make a lot of sense. Josh Freeman had his time to possibly shine for the team, but his struggles through the first three weeks of this season have made it tough for the front office to stick with him. He has thrown for 571 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions, but the problem is that his completion rate is one of the worst in the league. In those games he completed only 45.7 percent of his passes.
While another team hasn't emerged as a suitor yet, it doesn't mean that another team won't come calling soon. It's certainly possible that a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars could really use an improvement like this one, but if struggling franchises are waiting for the 2014 draft, then there might not be a market for Freeman after all.
