Reunion Talk For FreemanOctober 4th, 2013
Based on Josh Freeman’s personality, No. 5 and Northern California seem like a great fit.
Greg Olson implied he thinks so, too, per BSPN. The former Bucs offensive coordinator joined the ranks of former Freeman coaches that have stepped up to publicly love him since his release.
“You know, I’ve always been a fan of Josh’s,” Olson said, per ESPN.com. “I have a lot of respect for him, as a person and a player, and it’s unfortunate to me to watch what happened in Tampa … really over the last couple of years.”
Freeman’s best seasons came with Olson as the play caller. With question marks behind starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor – Matt Flynn was demoted to third-string this week — a reunion in the Black Hole makes sense for both sides.
Joe would love to see Freeman land with Olson in Oakland. What great comedy theater that would be. What would make it interesting, though, is that Olson and the entire Raiders staff are battling to keep their jobs. That might prompt Olson to unshackle Freeman and let him run like he did in 2010.
