Josh Freeman, the quarterback who rapidly went from one of the most promising young players in the NFL to a major disappointment, is getting another shot.
The Dolphins have agreed to a one-year contract with Freeman, according to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report.
Freeman was the Buccaneers’ first-round draft pick in 2009, and quickly made the Bucs’ decision to draft him look brilliant. In 2010, Freeman threw 25 touchdown passes and just six interceptions.
But his play declined after that, there was talk that he didn’t get along with new coach Greg Schiano and his staff, and the Bucs cut Freeman during the 2013 season. Freeman signed with the Vikings and quickly became the starter in Minnesota, but he was a disaster and was benched after his first game.
Last year Freeman was out of the NFL after the Giants cut him following a brief period on their offseason roster. Now the Dolphins will give him another chance to show he belongs. This may be his last chance.
