If that were to happen, what would your thoughts/feelings be?

I think it would be a good fit for both the Packers and Freeman. Gives the Packers a solid #2 and gives Freeman a chance to learn. And Freeman can teach Aaron Rodgers how to pull off a 4th quarter comeback!

Is Josh Freeman a vested veteran? Does he have to be subjected to the waiver wire? Packers are 1 - 2, this might be good for them, although I think the Jaguars should snap him up.

He was released. He's only been in the league for 4 years, I think will have to clear waivers, sounds like the head coach down there really threw him under the bus.

Nobody puts a claim in for him the next 24 hours he will be a FA.

Haven't heard much about Seneca's progress, this seems to be the year Ted and Mike are purging the team of young qb's, interesting to see if they make a move on hi if they get a chance.

Still think Matt Flynn will become available, if not soon, at the end of the year and he will be back where he belongs.

He's going to a team where he can start. I highly doubt we will sign him. I don't see the point anyways, it's not like he's gonna do anything if Rodgers goes down (knock on wood), and if we do sign him, he won't probably be with us next year. I also see the Vince Young Effect coming in.

The way he's stunk up the joint this year, he couldn't start anywhere but Jacksonville...

That said, I'd take him as a backup in a heartbeat.

Smartest move he could make would be to come hear and learn under Mike.

I can't believe the Jaguars would pass on this kid. If he does get another gig, whatever money he makes under a new contract would that subtract from what the Bucs owe him after the new year?

Bucs cut him a check for 5.9 mil today and said audios.(ouch), hate to see what their cap space looks like now.

Jaguars, or anyone else(Jags are 1st in line, then Steelers and so on) can put a claim on him in the next 24 hours and then negotiate a new contract.

Or if no one puts a claim on him in 24 hours , he is free to sign with any team in the NFL.

Freeman must have really pissed off the Tampa bay organization for them to pay him 5.9 mil to just go away.

Reported they called every team trying to work a trade, but of course no one would bite.


edit: whoever signs him gets to negotiate new contract.
The 5.9 mil(guaranteed money) paid by Bucs was what they had to do to release him.

My first thought was that the money would make it impractical, but I guess that is out of the picture with the payoff he got from Tampa.

He was a QB with a strong accurate arm and good ability to escape the rush or get open. I'd grab him - or at least offer him a minimum contract - and train him in the Packer way of doing things. Any backup QB is a hit to the starter away from starting. He certainly could afford to take a minimum contract after receiving that payoff, and playing for the Packers is a great thing in two ways: an excellent place to improve his QB skills AND if, heaven forbid, he had to play, it would be on a contending team, most of which don't need a backup QB.

This is all smoke, however, as the Packers just don't swing that way - re-educating down-on-their-luck but skillful veterans. Also, SOMETHING is causing Freeman's problems this season. Either it is known but nobody is saying (maybe the ritalin thing for example), or else the cause is unknown. Either way, the Packers seem to shy away from that sort of thing.

Matt Flynn, Brian Brohm, Graham Harrell, Vince Young, and BJ Coleman disagree!

Seriously though, aside from Rodgers, Mike McCarthy has had a pretty abysmal track of QBs here.

Also, unfortunately for TB, 2 starting QBs went down on the day they cut him lol. (CLE, BUF)

Brian Brohm flamed out, because his daddy was no longer coaching him.

Matt Flynn has never looked the same since leaving here. Rich Gannon went from a career journeyman to a pro bowler under Mike. He even made Aaron Brooks look good, at times.

Harrell just never had the confidence. I honestly think he could get it done on some level, if he wasn't too intimidated to even be on an NFL field.

I just don't see how he would be an improvement over Seneca Wallace at this point. Too much of a headache to take into the locker room at this time. No thanks.

That said, the Packers organization under Ted Thompson has been successful to some degree in giving players second chances. Jolly and Koren Robinson come to mind. Others haven't worked. One of the shockers to me was Anthony Hargrove. Thought he would respect the opportunity he was given, and he pretty much pissed that away by mouthing off to the staff and by setting a bad example.

Right now, I would say "no."

Add, Seneca Wallace seems a fantastic locker room fit with GB. Rodgers and the rest of the players see he is a consummate professional. May not be the best, or the youngest, but he brings good experience and knowledge to the table.

I could be wrong. Freeman did have some really strong play in TB before Shiano got there.
