Raiders OC Greg Olson Was Always A Fan Of Freeman
Hes not the only former Bucs assistant coach with nice things to say about the former Bucs quarterback. Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson had the same job in Tampa during Freemans first three seasons in the NFL and said the experience left him with warm feelings for the quarterback.
Ive always been a fan of Josh as a person and a player, Olson said, via Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com. It was unfortunate, for me, to watch what happened in Tampa really over the last couple of years. Ive always had the utmost respect for him. I think hes a great player. I feel bad for him and the entire situation and how its played out. I just found out myself coming off the field that he was released. I dont think there are any winners for anybody in that situation.
