Freeman To Work Out With ChuckyJune 16th, 2014
Jimminy Christmas! This is just too delicious.
Apparently in a last-ditch effort to save his nosediving career, former Bucs quarterback, leaky, sleepy Josh Freeman, will work out for a week with Chucky to try to stem his NFL days from completely circling the drain.
Freeman, who totally melted down last offseason, was benched by former Bucs commander Greg Schiano after three starts with the Bucs in 2013. Afterwards, he pitched such a hissy fit, the Bucs had to throw him off the team he became such a menace.
Freeman then went to the Vikings and in one start looked about as miserable as a quarterback could. He finished the season in Minnesota and then latched on to the Giants in the offseason. His days with Tom Coughlin’s marine-like practices lasted only a handful of weeks.
Freeman is now walking the streets looking for work while NFL teams have their rosters set for training camps. In other words, Freeman might want to start looking into a Canadian work visa.
What sure smells like a last, desperate gasp to remain as a professional quarterback, Freeman, per long-time NFL personnel guru and NFL worker bee Gil Brandt, the former Bucs franchise quarterback will unite with the only coach to win Tampa Bay a Super Bowl for a series of practices.
Attempting to get career back on track, Josh Freeman will work out w/ Jon Gruden next weej and QB guru Terry Shea the week after.

Joe cannot think of a more oil-and-water combo than Freeman and Chucky, outside of Freeman and Coughlin. Freeman, apparently, is brittle mentally and cannot handle harsh critique, or for that matter, hollering. In other words, it seems he needs to be babied.
Chucky has about as much patience with quarterbacks as a housefly, and he’s well-known to curse in a quarterback’s ear so much the words remove any and all ear wax. Besides, Chucky is a morning guy, who wakes before 4 a.m. Freeman has demonstrated he either can’t tell time or doesn’t know how to master setting an alarm clock.
This maneuver ought to go over really well, huh?
If Freeman can somehow survive the Chucky experience, then maybe he can regain his professional career?
On the surface, though, Chucky will be Freeman’s best defender, throwing “love” all over the place to whoever will listen. Joe can just imagine Chucky saying, “This Freeman guy threw 25 and 6 with my freakin’ playbook. No offense to Greg Olson, but I thought I had burned every copy of that damn thing.”
