I expect they sign a QB tomorrow. Various reports have the Bills, Vikes, Raiders, Packers and 49ers all talking to Freeman's camp. I assume the Bills will get priced out of that market pretty quick.
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.

Dez is the best receiver in the game

Speculation from a media columnist.

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.

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.

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.

I don't think Pat White has ever completed a pass in the NFL.

There wasn't really any better options though.

I expect both him a Tuel to get snaps during the game. Hackett & co our going to have to get creative. Should be interesting.

I've been too mad to even come on the last few days.

Manuel, dope....go out of bounds. Though it was somewhat of a cheap shot.

Hackett is trash. So Tuel comes in...ONE SCREEN. It got a 1st down!

They made Weeden look Canton bound.

Pat White? That guy sucks. Freeman is no better but I would certainly have been okay with VINCE YOUNG.

Morman? REALLY? The guy SUCKS NOW! Theres a reason why everyone of late has let him go.

I guess this won't be a popular opinion, but I think it's the right choice considering what the options are.

Fair, but it wasn't the right choice a few days ago considering what the options were...

Honestly, I think we could do a lot worse at QB than Thad Lewis, namely by using Jeff Tuel. At least Lewis has some decent mobility and can throw a pass rolling out.

Can someone enlighten me on why Lewis was on the practice squad and not the back up, when Tuel is worse?
