Colts released QB Josh Freeman.
Signed as an emergency stop-gap prior to Week 17, Freeman was expected to compete for a backup role behind Andrew Luck. With Freeman gone and Matt Hasselbeck not expected to return, the Colts have to find a capable backup this offseason. Freeman will likely find a home as a camp arm this summer. Mar 7 - 10:24 AM

Colts.com’s Kevin Bowen could see Josh Freeman and/or Ryan Lindley as Andrew Luck’s backup in 2016.

It suggests the Colts might not re-sign Matt Hasselbeck if he doesn’t retire. Freeman and Lindley weren’t terrible during Week 17 spot duty, but would leave the Colts with one of the worst backup situations in the league. Re-signing Hasselbeck shouldn’t require more than the $3 million he made in 2015.

Josh Freeman completed 15-of-28 passes for 149 yards, one touchdown, and an interception in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Titans.

He added eight rushes for 24 yards. Freeman wasn't terrible for getting signed this week. He likely showed enough to compete for some team's No. 3 job next year.
Jan 3 - 6:21 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Freeman is expected to be the Colts' starting quarterback on Sunday.

He must have won the practice battle with Ryan Lindley. Lindley will presumably serve as Indy's backup, with Stephen Morris on the third string. Expect the Colts' offense to be ground based against a Titans defense hemorrhaging points. The Colts will get Frank Gore to 1,000 rushing yards if he can must 109 against Tennessee. Gore is also coming off one of his best games.
Jan 3 - 10:46 AM

Josh Freeman and Ryan Lindley handled the "lion's share" of quarterback reps at Colts practice on Wednesday.

It sounds like Freeman and Lindley will wage an in-practice competition to start against the Titans, while Stephen Morris will serve as third string. The Colts signed Freeman off the street on Tuesday. The last time Freeman started a game after being with the team for a brief period occurred in 2013 with the Vikings. On Monday night against the Giants, Freeman proceeded to go 23-of-50 passing for 190 yards in one of the hardest-to-watch quarterback performances of all time.

Colts signed QB Josh Freeman.

It's a strong indication Andrew Luck (kidney) won't return for Week 17. With the Colts' only other healthy quarterback being Stephen Morris, there's a possibility Freeman starts against the Titans. That would qualify as a "what a time to be alive"-type moment for the snakebitten Colts. Freeman last started in Week 7 of the 2013 season for the Vikings, where had one of the worst starts of the modern era.

Free agent QB Josh Freeman is working out for the Colts Monday.

Matt Hasselbeck is unlikely to play this week because of an AC sprain in his throwing shoulder, and Charlie Whitehurst suffered a hamstring injury late against Miami. Those injuries potentially leave Stephen Morris, who was signed last Thursday, as the only healthy quarterback on the roster. Andrew Luck (kidney) has not been ruled out, but bringing him back for what is likely a meaningless game behind that offensive line would be a poor decision. Freeman spent some time with the Dolphins this offseason, but he has not played a snap since 2013.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 10:36:00 AM

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.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 04:39:00 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.
Thu, Aug 6, 2015 10:12:00 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.
Tue, Jul 28, 2015 10:20:00 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.
Fri, Jul 24, 2015 04:45:00 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.
Thu, Apr 2, 2015 06:37:00 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.
Thu, Apr 2, 2015 06:22:00 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.
Fri, Mar 20, 2015 11:40:00 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.
