Packers Could Offer Freeman Ideal Situation

FreemanThe chances of recently released quarterback Josh Freeman landing in Green Bay as the Packers backup are, in all reality, slim to none.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers released Freeman Thursday afternoon.

Yet it is simply too difficult to envision a scenario in which a 25-year-old quarterback with rare physical skills chooses to sit behind one of the game’s most entrenched players over a situation where he could start sooner rather than later.

However, there are few places Freeman could now go that would be better for his NFL prospects long-term than Green Bay.

Aaron Rodgers was handed a $110 million contract this offseason, and there may not be another starting quarterback in Green Bay until he decides to hang up the cleats. But Freeman wouldn’t go to Green Bay for a chance to start.
