Josh Freeman Reaches Out To Mike GlennonMay 2nd, 2013
If Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman senses someone breathing on his back or pressure from the Bucs drafting a quarterback in the third round, he sure isn’t acting like it.
New Bucs quarterback Mike Glennon met the Tampa Bay pen and mic club today, and the North Carolina State product noted — and praised — Freeman for not only getting in touch with him in the hours after Glennon was drafted, but the two talked and Freeman couldn’t have been more of a consummate teammate and professional, so Glennon said.
“I texted both Josh and Dan [Orlovsky] after the draft and Josh was nice enough to reach out and actually call me,” Glennon said. “It was great to hear from him. He said he was excited to have me here and that the quarterbacks are a tight group and he looks forward to me joining the family.
“It was really encouraging talking to him.”
Joe sincerely thinks this is fantastic. One thing that concerned Joe was Freeman potentially turning frosty or reacting poorly to the pressure of a QB that could ice him out.
It appears Freeman took the opposite approach. A professional approach. A class teammate approach.
