Vikings Sign QB Josh Freeman

By sdswanson

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings have acquired a new quarterback Sunday night.

According to NFL agent Erik Burkhardt, free-agent quarterback Josh Freeman has signed with the Minnesota Viking for a one-year contract.

Freeman was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ starting quarterback at the start of this season, but was benched a week ago in favor of a rookie.

Now in his fifth year, Freeman was the 17th overall pick in the 2009 draft out of Kansas State.

He was the NFC player of the week a couple times in 2010, but was having trouble inside the Buccaneers’ locker room, reportedly missing the team photo.

After unsuccessfully trying to trade Freeman, he was released Sunday night, and signed with the Vikings soon after.

The Vikings will host the Carolina Panthers Sunday at noon.
