Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post confirmed the news after speaking to Ron Freeman, Josh’s agent and father. However, Freeman’s father declined to go in to details of why Miami released him and has now brought him back.
Miami just released Freeman last week, so it’s interesting to see them bring him back so soon.
Freeman, 27, was taken in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Buccaneers. He wound up playing four years for the Bucs before they cut him loose in July of 2012.
The Vikings wasted no time in signing him to a contract, however, it proved to be a disastrous decision for both parties. Freeman later caught on with the Giants in April of last year, but he lasted a little over a month in New York before he was once again released.
The Dolphins elected to give Freeman another shot when they signed him to a one-year contract in April.
In 2013, Freeman appeared in just four games and 42.9 percent of his passes for 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
