Just three days after Josh Freeman was released by the only team he’s ever known, the fifth-year quarterback has reportedly signed with the Minnesota Vikings.
NBC broke the news during its Sunday Night Football broadcast just after the completion of the 49ers-Texans game.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed the news minutes later on Twitter. Freeman will be signed to a one-year deal worth $3 million, according to the report.
Previous reports indicated that both the Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders were pushing hard to get the former Buccaneers quarterback, and that Oakland would have even handed Freeman the starting job.
In three games for Tampa Bay this season, Freeman turned the ball over four times (three interceptions and a fumble) and only completed 45.7 percent of his passes with two touchdowns.
