Bucs’ Freeman Feels Bad About Team Photo

Bucs QB Josh Freeman, Greg Schiano [1]Embattled quarterback Josh Freeman acknowledged Thursday that he overslept and missed a team photo session of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, but denied any suggestions of a frayed relationship with head coach Greg Schiano.

Freeman, in the final year of his rookie contract, was not named an offensive team captain in voting by the players a few days after the Sept. 2 photo shoot. He had held that distinction since his 2010 breakthrough season, when he led the Bucs to a 10-6 mark in his first full year as an NFL starter.

“I overslept, point blank,’’ said Freeman, who completed only 15 of 31 pass attempts during an 18-17 loss to the New York Jets in Week 1.

“I was talking to the guys the night before and just didn’t get up on time. The position of quarterback is a position of leadership and, obviously, missing a team photo is a big deal. It’s something I feel badly about. It’s upsetting, but at the same time, you’ve got to put it behind you because, like it or not, the Saints are coming to town.’’
