Miami surprisingly signed him to a one-year, $765,000 contract back in earlier April, but the odds were clearly against him making the final 53-man roster. The agreement included no guaranteed money.
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.
The Giants signed later signed him to a contract in April of last year, but he lasted a little over a month in New York before he was once again released.
In 2013, Freeman appeared in just four games and 42.9 percent of his passes for 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
