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.

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



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.

I would ask why we're spending draft picks on who's going to back Rodgers up for a few games rather than players that are going to prevent Rodgers from getting killed to begin with. In prior years I would say "yes", but we're thin enough in other areas that say, a starting quality corner or safety would be a better use of a trade. I doubt we're going to find any better linemen mid-season.

I'd be okay with signing Josh Freeman under the hope that they trade him shortly before the deadline after he showed he's lights out filling in for Aaron Rodgers because the Packers are smoking teams so bad.

I went on Facebook this morning before any sports worthy news and saw PackersHome.com's page read, "Packers sign QB Freeman."
I was so excited until I clicked and realized it was just an "if" thread. Sad

He is an upgrade over Wallace, that is for sure. However, this guy isn't going to any team that is going to make him hold a clipboard. He was demoted from captain by the Bucs players and just seems like a big locker room headache. Sure, it would be great to bring him in, make him the player he should be and get some draft picks out of him but I just see another team snatching him up.

The only three teams I see in the running are Bills, Browns and Jaguars. Jaguars are too damn dumb to realize they need a QB though since they continue to make Gabbert the starter over Henne. Browns have Weeden, but what's behind him or would Freeman come in and start for them? The Bills are dependent on how bad Manuel's knee injury is.

....maybe there is a chance for the Packers to stash him as a back up. Smile
