The Tampa Bay Buccaneers really want Josh Freeman gone. So instead of quietly working out a trade when he asked for one behind closed doors, they allegedly leaked that information. Instead of just releasing him, the allegedly leaked that his was in stage 1 of the NFL drug program. Now they want to trade him:
Source says Bucs have called nearly dozen teams about trading Josh Freeman and indicated plan to reach out to all 32 by end of today

I imagine there are some really interesting phone calls happening right now. For instance, “Hey Mike McCarthy I know you need someone to challenge Aaron Rodgers” or “Hey Mr Elway it’s, *click*”
The Bucs are an absolute mess right now and all of this is to distract from the fact that Greg Schiano can’t coach.
