Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report reports that the Dolphins have signed former first-round pick QB Josh Freeman to a one-year deal.
- Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post first reported that the two sides were close to an agreement.
The Jets brought Freeman in for a workout a few weeks ago, which was the first reported interest in him since last summer.
In the end, Freeman may end up being just a camp body for the Dolphins, given that they re-signed Matt Moore to a contract not too long ago.
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.
