Josh Freeman, who has been hanging onto his NFL career by a thread, has been re-signed by the Miami Dolphins only days after he was released by them. For Freeman, it should be sobering news just how few observers were surprised he had been cut, even before training camp.
However, most NFL teams go to training camp with at least four quarterbacks to ensure continuity in the passing drills. Freeman is still considered to be behind starter Ryan Tannehill and backup Matt Moore. That would leave Freeman battling with free agent McLeod Bethel-Thompson for a spot on the roster, although the Dolphins carried only two last season.
Freeman had two decent seasons with the Bucs. In 2010, he threw for 25 touchdowns and six interceptions, and in 2012, he threw for more than 4,000 yards. But after the Bucs soured on him, he lasted only one game with Minnesota. He was cut in the preseason by the Giants and earlier by the Dolphins.
