Trade speculation has already begun about Josh Freeman after his announced demotion on Wednesday by Buccaneers. The Jacksonville Jaguars could be the most woeful team at the quarterback position and Freeman would certainly be an upgrade over Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert, but the Jags are apparently satisfied at the position for now.

No front runners have come to the surface to bid on Freeman, but a popular favorite may become Oakland. The Raiders have been known to make trades recently in their desperate quest to find a franchise QB. It helps that the offensive coordinator in Oakland is Greg Olson, who held the same title in Tampa Bay during Freeman’s first three years in the league.

If Terrelle Pryor’s concussion keeps him out awhile, and Matt Flynn proves he was nothing more than a one game wonder, would it make sense for the Raiders to pursue Freeman? You tell us.

    What’s wrong with you motherfuckers? Josh Freeman? Worst passer rating in the league. We’re showing progress with Pryor so why in the world would we want a QB controversy right now? I understand you news types have to have something to talk about but this needs to be swept back under the rug.

    • In fairness, I don’t believe the writer was suggesting that you replace Pryor with Freeman.

      His words. “If Terrelle Pryor’s concussion keeps him out awhile, and Matt Flynn proves he was nothing more than a one game wonder, would it make sense for the Raiders to pursue Freeman?”

      I would have to agree with you that Freeman is probably not a good pickup for the Raiders right now – but if Pryor remains out for any significant amount of time then I think it’s fair to ask what your best options might be at that point. Flynn or someone else?

      • Thats what Matt McGloin is for. The bigger point is he’s not a fit with that salary and creating more qb turmoil. If you know more about the team your writing about its eassier to provide real solutions. This was throwing it up against the wall to see if it sticks.

  2. I’d kinda like to see how our current quarterback works out before I start thinking about potentially signing a new one.

    Personally, I think it would be a horrific idea to trade for Freeman. Even just for a late round pick would be bad. His salary is way too high and the Raiders need to give Pryor a legitimate shot before deciding to move on. And if they do move on, shouldnt be to a guy who has struggled this badly in the league.
