Josh Freeman inactive for Week Four


Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman, benched for rookie Mike Glennon earlier this week, is inactive for Sunday’s game against Arizona.

Dan Orlovsky will be the top backup to Glennon, who’s making his first NFL start.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Sunday morning that Freeman missed multiple meetings this week, which led to the club’s decision.

Freeman is in the final year of his contract, and it’s widely speculated his future is somewhere other than Tampa Bay.

    Missing multiple meetings? Yeah, this will really make another team want to sign him.

    sorry Josh, but you have been Schianoed!

    Missing meeting isn’t going to get you on another team.

    You’d think that Freeman would have an agent telling him to stop being a baby. He only has the rest of this season, then he can move on. Unless he’s forcing his own release. Even in a QB starved league you have to think no team wants a guy who acts like that at the most important position. Grow up.

    I wouldn’t be happy getting benched, but missing meetings makes no sense. Be professional, it’ll help persuade other teams to trade for you.

    As a Bucs fan, it pains me to have to say it, but Josh Freeman is no longer an asset to the team. He has become a distraction and a liability to the Bucs. Best for him and the team to part ways and move on. I would also not be surprised to learn that Josh has some personal issues in his life he is trying to deal with. I wish him well! Go Bucs!

    Go ask Titus Young or Ryan Leaf how that diva behavior worked out for them.

    You can’t miss meetings when you are part of any type of organization. Period. If I am Erik Burkhardt, Freeman’s agent, I would advise my client to show up at all team meetings and put up with poor working environments to enhance your value.

    Are teams like Cleveland, Arizona or Minnesota desperate enough to trade for this guy?

    Freeman is not a professional. Years from now (five perhaps) when he’s broke, he’ll look back on this whole situation and realize what an immature baby he was.

    For $494k per week he should attend the meetings.

    He’s been inactive since week one.
