Josh Freeman Trade: Buccaneers quarterback on radar of a few NFL teams

Jim Rogash

Are there any teams willing to give up anything for Josh Freeman? The Tampa Bay Buccaneers hope so.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched Josh Freeman for Mike Glennon, and that means the Josh Freeman era is now over in Tampa. Freeman holds little value for the Bucs anymore, as he's in the last year of his contract, and the Buccaneers would be wise to move on and trade him for anything they could get at this point.

Finding a trade partner is easier said than done, however. While teams may have wanted to trade for Josh Freeman this past offseason, bringing in a new quarterback in the middle of the regular season is a different matter. There's no time for the quarterback to learn the system or get acclimated to his new teammates.

Moreover, Josh Freeman has around $7 million left on his contract, and any team trading for him would be expected to pick that up. The Bucs may be willing to convert some of that to a signing bonus to take on that cap hit themselves, but they likely won't be willing to go very far in that matter.

Instead, those teams could simply wait for next offseason to sign the then free agent.
