As it turns out, no one wants Freeman. At least not as a trade. He’s still owed more than $6 million and has the league’s worst completion percentage.

It’s not surprising the Bucs finally gave him the heave-ho. Freeman has been fined by the Bucs three times for a total of $35,000 in the last week. One of those fined was incurred after Freeman gave an unauthorized interview to ESPN.
