Raiders OC Greg Olson Was “Always A Fan” Of Freeman

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh FreemanHe’s 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 Freeman’s first three seasons in the NFL and said the experience left him with warm feelings for the quarterback.

“I’ve always been a fan of Josh as a person and a player,” Olson said, via Scott Bair of “It was unfortunate, for me, to watch what happened in Tampa really over the last couple of years. I’ve always had the utmost respect for him. I think he’s a great player. I feel bad for him and the entire situation and how it’s played out. I just found out myself coming off the field that he was released. I don’t think there are any winners for anybody in that situation.”
