Report: Josh Freeman was late for numerous meetings during his time in Minnesota

According to Tom Peliserro of USA TODAY Sports, Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman was late multiple times over the course of his time in Minnesota.

Four people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports that Freeman was late for numerous meetings in his roughly three months with the Vikings. A third player said Freeman often was among the last players to the facility.

Freeman’s agent says otherwise.

One of Freeman’s agents, Erik Burkhardt, said “anything about meetings or missing anything is false,” and the only issue was Freeman played too soon.

Head coach Leslie Frazier had no choice but to leave Freeman on the bench after falling flat on his face during his only start as a Viking.

Either way, Frazier couldn’t go back once Freeman was healthy, particularly because the consensus in the locker room was Cassel should have kept the job after he led the Vikings to their first win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 29, three weeks before Freeman’s debut.

    hello, You know SCREW Josh Freeman and his ONE game played $3,000,000 contract. For those of you ignorant fools in Hespermia, CA that is THREE MILLION DOLLARS. NOBODY deserves $3M / game. And then to show your ‘attitude’ by not being ON TIME or EARLY for team meetings–just raise the fine to $1,000,000 (1 million dollars) for every meeting you are more than 5 minutes late!! That’ll get those prima donna players in the meeting room on time.
    DUMP this clown; let Jerry Jones buy him. Raiders Al Davis is dead so the only other fool I know of is Jerry Joness–let HIM pick up the tab on this worthless QB. Oh, was I harsh? You’re damn right–with players like Tim Tebow who cannot find a spot–you’ve got Josh who ‘thinks he was hurt’ faking a orgasm no faking a concussion, his first game out there in Minnesota.
    BUUUURP that’s for Mark “Sackchez” Sanchez who can’t stay sober enough to work out, get stronger and play football. We ALL know your “JETS-WEST” is a 10 day drinking, boozing, and running around hotel rooms in your underpants is all about….and it’s NOT football.
    Goodday gentlemen.
