Giants Release QB Josh Freeman

Minnesota Vikings v New York Giants

Quarterback Josh Freeman, a first-round draft pick by the Bucs in 2009, lasted about six weeks with the Giants as they released him today according to Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger.

It was clear Thursday during OTAs that Freeman didn’t really factor into the team’s plans. He spent most of the team drills with a helmet in his hands. On one occasion when he did get on the field, the Giants were unable to get aligned properly and never ran a play. Freeman was immediately pulled in favor of Curtis Painter

There were some serious concerns within the Giants organization about Freeman’s ability to pick up the new offense. That combined with Manning and Painter’s quick recoveries likely nudged them to this decision.

    Freeman just can’t seem to land anywhere for very long; wonder how much longer he will be in the NFL, and if he will ever be a starter again.
