Josh Freeman to start at QB for Buccaneers this weekend
The AP reports:
Josh Freeman wiped the sweat off his forehead, took a deep breath and answered another question about taking over the offense of the only team yet to win a game in the NFL this season.
Ready or not, the 17th overall pick in this year's draft will make his first start Sunday, facing the Green Bay Packers on a day when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will reflect on the past while looking to the future.
The Bucs drafted Freeman, hoping he wouldn't have to play as a rookie. Veteran Byron Leftwich led the team for three weeks before second-year pro Josh Johnson was given the first four starts of his career.
