Not that long ago, Josh Freeman was a 1st round NFL draft pick and a starter in the league. Just a handful of years later, he’s out of the NFL all together. But he has resurfaced on the field in the FXFL, which is a developmental league of sorts.
The former first-round pick of the Bucs won’t be toiling for an NFL team this autumn, but the quarterback’s playing career isn’t over yet. Freeman has joined forces with the Brooklyn Bolts of the Fall Experimental Football League.
It’s unclear where Freeman is going with this. The FXFL has served as a productive staging ground for young players on the fringe of the NFL. Tajh Boyd, Ryan White and Tim Flanders have passed through its doors, but Freeman, by all accounts, has come to the end of his NFL journey.
