I understand the draw of being able to walk on as a starter, but he would be walking on with the Raiders. Don't you think he would also want to consider surrounding himself with talent and a better position to succeed in Buffalo? Lets be honest, the Bills are much closer to being a playoff team than Oakland, especially because our secondary is due for an infusion of talent soon and the defense has been solid in a weakened state (Gilmore, Byrd, Brooks all back against Cincy, correct?).
I'm not saying its likely he comes here or anything, but I think he considers it, even with the threat of a QB competition in 6 weeks.
I thought that whatever he signs for, the Vikes still pay him his normal salary minus what the new team is paying him? That is, he will be paid the same regardless.
Freeman will be paid the 7 million Tampa owes him from Tampa. What ever he signs for now is his new contract. If he was looking for a one year deal and was hoping to audition for a better job then Buffalo would be good. If he was looking for longer than a year then the Vikings or Raiders would be better. GB and SF don't make sense to be truthful.
It really ****ing sucks to be a Buffalo sports fan right now.
While this is very true, I'm not sure what else they were expected to do. Freeman likely wanted to go somewhere he'd have the opportunity to be the franchise guy, and that place wasn't here. At least they made an effort.
Chances are, it's Tuel time for the next few games. If White (or Lewis) gets any time, I'll be interested to see how heavily Hackett leans on the read option. I'd like to see them at least attempt to tailor a gameplan to his unique talents.
