Bucs: Freeman High-Flying Under The Radar

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — At 6-foot-6, 240 pounds and playing the highest-profile position on the field better than he ever has as a pro, it’s difficult to imagine Josh Freeman being overshadowed in the emergence of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense.

The suddenly potent Bucs averaged more points, yards and yards per play than any team in the NFL in October and have won four of five games, including three straight, to turn their season around following a slow start.

Running back Doug Martin has grabbed headlines, receiver Vincent Jackson has had a major impact and Mike Williams has drawn rave reviews for making acrobatic receptions.

Yet the stellar play of Freeman, who’s thrown for 13 TDs with only one interception in the past five weeks, largely has gone unnoticed.
