The 25-year-old Freeman signed with Minnesota three days after getting clipped by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 3.
Freeman struggled mightily this season over three games as a Buc and completed an abysmal 45.7 percent of his 94 attempts.
Regardless, Freeman has more upside than Christian Ponder.
Conversely, Ponder has thrown 33 scores, in comparison to 30 interceptions, for 5,479 yards in 29 starts.
Although unable to ignite the “Cigar City,” Freeman was forced to work with clowns pocket Greg Schiano.
Schiano thinks he’s tougher than Balls Mahoney and even the legendary Tom Brady could flounder running Tampa Bay’s system.
Freeman possesses a powerful arm and has incredible physical tools.
However, Freeman also has difficulty reading a defense and is plagued with substandard vision on the gridiron.
With the league’s fifth ranked attack, Minnesota clearly has offensive weapons that can get the ball in the end zone.
Still, under the proper supervision, Josh Freeman will better the Vikings’ assault and allow Minnesotans to repress the Christian Ponder era.by
