Dolphins released QB Josh Freeman.
Freeman was previously released in July before being re-signed four days later. The former first-rounder's downward spiral continued unabated this summer, as he completed just 23-of-48 preseason passes (47.9 percent). It's been a bizarre career for the now 27-year-old quarterback. Freeman might not get another chance. Sep 4 - 4:39 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero said if QB Josh Freeman plays like he's practiced at training camp, "he will not be a Miami Dolphin."

Freeman has been a disaster at camp, leading Salguero to call him "accuracy challenged." The Dolphins may have had it right the first time when they cut Freeman prior to camp only to re-sign him four days later. The 27-year-old hasn't taken a regular season NFL snap since 2013.
Aug 6 - 10:12 AM

Dolphins re-signed QB Josh Freeman.

It's an odd transaction as Freeman was just cut by the Dolphins on Friday. Regardless, he'll be a camp arm behind Ryan Tannehill, Matt Moore and McLeod Bethel-Thompson.
Jul 28 - 10:20 AM

Dolphins released QB Josh Freeman.

Freeman spent the offseason as Miami's No. 3 quarterback, but didn't show enough to make it to training camp. After sitting out the 2014 season, his NFL career is in doubt. The Dolphins will move forward with McLeod Bethel-Thompson behind Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore.
Jul 24 - 4:45 PM

Dolphins signed QB Josh Freeman to a one-year contract.

The agreement ends a year in the NFL wilderness for the No. 17 overall pick of the 2009 draft. Freeman was as bad as can be in four combined appearances for the Bucs and Vikings in 2013, but has a huge arm, and is still only 27. With Matt Moore entrenched behind Ryan Tannehill, Freeman's best-case scenario in Miami is No. 3 duties. A productive camp and preseason could earn Freeman a dice-roll as someone else's No. 2.
Apr 2 - 6:37 PM

The Palm Beach Post reports the Dolphins are "close" to signing free agent Josh Freeman.

Matt Moore remains locked in behind Ryan Tannehill, so Freeman would be no higher than No. 3 on the depth chart. The No. 17 overall pick of the 2009 draft was out of the league last season after a dreadful, bizarre 2013. Freeman has also drawn looks from the Eagles and Jets this offseason. His best-case scenario could be looking good in Dolphins camp before latching on elsewhere.
Apr 2 - 6:22 PM

The Eagles worked out free agent QB Josh Freeman this week.

Philadelphia was actually conducting a private workout with USC WR Nelson Agholor, but Freeman was the one summoned to throw the passes. Freeman is still just 27 and has a huge arm. He's also worked out for the Jets recently. Coach Chip Kelly seems interested in adding another quarterback to his roster.
Mar 20 - 11:40 AM

Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman reports free agent QB Josh Freeman recently worked out for the Jets.

It's the first we've heard of Freeman in roughly nine months. Freeman was completely off the radar last season following his nightmarish 2013. Per the reporter Freeman, Josh's Jets workout went "well," and "several other teams" are supposedly "taking a hard look." Freeman's NFL career will essentially be over if he can't crack someone's offseason roster this year.
Mar 16 - 2:29 PM

In an attempt to get his career on track, free agent QB Josh Freeman will spend this week training with ex-Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden, and next week with noted quarterbacks guru Terry Shea.

Still just 26 years old, Freeman was outlasted on the Giants' roster by Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib this spring. Gruden is currently an ESPN analyst, while Shea frequently works with rookie quarterbacks leading up to the draft. Freeman will very likely get another look from an NFL team. Whether he realizes his full potential will be up to him. Talent has never been his problem.

Giants released QB Josh Freeman.

He lasted just six weeks with the team. Freeman was never a good fit for new Giants OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting West Coast offense in the first place. The G-Men will move forward with Ryan Nassib and Curtis Painter behind Eli Manning, who recovered ahead of schedule from ankle surgery and is taking part in OTAs. Still only 26 years old, Freeman is just two seasons removed from a 27:17 TD-to-INT ratio campaign with the Buccaneers. Off-field and work-ethic question marks threaten to torpedo Freeman's once-promising NFL career.
Fri, May 30, 2014 04:26:00 PM

Giants agreed to terms with QB Josh Freeman on a one-year, $795,000 contract.

Matt Flynn chose to sign with the Packers, so the Giants go with Freeman as an offseason and camp arm. As long as Eli Manning's ankle heals as expected, it's possible Freeman won't even stick with the team into the regular season as Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib are already on the roster. The Giants typically carry just two quarterbacks. Freeman has the arm talent to win that No. 2 job, but he's going to have to earn his spot after getting dumped by the Bucs and then lasting one game as the Vikings starter last season.

Free agent Josh Freeman will work out for the Giants next week.

Freeman visited the Bears on Monday and is starting to get some play now that he's easily the top option remaining on the quarterback free-agent market. The Giants drafted Ryan Nassib in the fourth round last April and reportedly want to give him every opportunity to earn the No. 2 job behind Eli Manning. Freeman's addition would throw a wrench into those plans.

Free agent Josh Freeman visited the Bears on Monday.

It's Freeman's first-known visit. Although the Bears have Jay Cutler locked up as their franchise quarterback, it would be an ideal landing spot for Freeman. He'd get to work with quarterback-whisperer Marc Trestman, and have a good shot at making starts behind an injury-prone Cutler. It's surprising that it's taken Freeman this long to make a visit, but it speaks to how disastrous his 2013 was in every phase.
Mon, Apr 7, 2014 05:09:00 PM's Gil Brandt says he isn't sure if free agent Josh Freeman "has the desire to get better."

Dedication concerns hounded Freeman as he showed very little improvement through four-plus seasons with the Bucs. They eventually gave up and cut him midway through last year, leading to an embarrassing stint with the Vikings. Now on the street again, Freeman has attracted zero known interest. Brandt, the Godfather of scouting, believes Vince Young is a better option for teams at this point.
Mon, Mar 24, 2014 09:24:00 AM

NFL Network's Albert Breer confirms that the Raiders are "looking at" free agent Josh Freeman.

The Raiders would prefer to sign Matt Schaub if he's released, but Freeman, free agent Mike Vick, and Mark Sanchez are also on their list. Freeman played under OC Greg Olson for three seasons in Tampa and could be a fit based on his knowledge of the system. 26-year-old Freeman has yet to draw any other interest on the open market.
