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 this past in April, only to release him after a few weeks. Miami would later bring him back for training camp, but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts.

In 2013, Freeman appeared in just four games and 42.9 percent of his passes for 761 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.
