Josh Freeman in Stage 1 of NFL Drug Program
Things just keep getting more and more weird for Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It has been reported that he is in stage 1 of the NFL’s drug program via Chris Motensen:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman is a stage one participant in the NFL’s drug program but he is not one strike away from a suspension despite being subject to random testing, according to league and player sources with knowledge of his status.
Freeman has obtained a temporary use exemption for a prescription drug that normally would be on the banned list, the sources said.
Once again this sounds like a leak from Tampa Bay. He hasn’t tested positive for any substances. It seems to be like Tampa has been out to get him all along. I don’t know if this effects what, if any trade value he had. I don’t blame Josh for wanting out of Tampa Bay at this point.
