Good potential reward, with almost zero risk.


We dont really have to sign him, just pick him up on waivers and pick up the rest of his contract. I believe the Bucs are on the hook for a majority of his contract so he would be cheap for whatever team waiver claims him. Also means at the end of the season he would be a FA. If he shows nothing while here, you just let him walk. If he shows good potential, then resign him.

Hey if our coaches were able to give Hoyer some potential to his career, I wonder what they could do to a QB with a buttload of talent


Worth a shot.... We have to pick up someone anyways...

I like the idea. Why wouldn't we? We will need to sign another guy and like it or not, Freeman is already better than every QB we got.

According to the twitterverse we have no interest in Freeman. Too lazy to go find all the links but Caplan, Rappoport, and all the beat writers reported it.

He'd be a great CFL QB, though.

Freeman was a guy who I thought had zero chance of being a successful quarterback coming out of college. Then that second year of his.... really the only good year of his career, made me believe in his talents. I dont know what went wrong since then exactly but I find him semi-intruging.

Freeman can sign wherever he wants and does not have to clear waivers. Because of this, I would say the chances the Browns could sign him even if they wanted to would be next to 0 unless they guaranteed him the starting job this year. The reason Freeman wanted out of TB is because he wants to start and believes he is a starting QB. He would never elect to put himself in a situation where he would be a back-up or on a try-out, especially because the Bucs are on the hook for his salary this season. He can afford to wait for a better situation than the Browns can offer him.

what other team in the NFL gives him a better situation?

Browns have a real question mark at the QB position next year and have had trouble with their QB this year. No other team has QB issues like the Browns do.

Yes Bills re currently hurting at QB but they also have their future QB on the roster.

Freeman knows going to Cleveland is the best possible long term QB because he can play well this year that he could be brought back as the long term situation

I think he is just saying that the Browns suck.

He thinks Freeman would be better off waiting for Peyton Manning or Drew Brees to go down than to take a guaranteed starting role (not that we would offer him that) from the Browns now. Heck, maybe even take over for Kaepernick when he gets hurt. Beggars can be choosers, you know.

Freeman is such a turd. That whole sit down interview with ESPN the week he was benched really rubbed me the wrong way. Who's to say he wouldnt cause a similar distraction once benched here?

Anywhere he signs, the first sign of trouble the team will cut him... I think he understands that.
