ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Live that the Buccaneers will take anything for quarterback Josh Freeman.
“They would probably take anything for him at this point,” Mortensen stated. In addition to poor performance, Freeman carries a fully guaranteed $8.43 million base salary that any team would have to take on if they acquired him via trade. That’s barring an in-season restructure/extension, which would seem awfully unlikely. This year’s NFL trade deadline is October 29.
