Lost and largely forgotten amid a lost and largely forgettable Vikings season, quarterback Josh Freeman continues to wait for his chance to play. Well over a month after joining the team and as of tomorrow one month removed from his only playing time in Minnesota, Freeman isn’t frustrated by his status.
“He’s coming along,” a source with knowledge of the situation recently told PFT. “That position and everything that goes into being successful just takes time and reps and that’s what this last month has been about.”
Freeman hopes to play in December, which would give the Vikings a chance to see if he could be the answer in 2014 — and which would give Freeman a chance to generate some game film that could help him get a job elsewhere, if the Vikings aren’t interested in keeping him.
Regardless, the Vikings continue to pay Freeman $166,667 per week now for the right to decide whether to pay him even more later. Soon, the Vikings could finally find out what they have in the former first-round pick who has shown that he can play at a high level — especially in a couple of games played against the Vikings in Minnesota.
