Bucs name Freeman backup behind Leftwich

Tampa Tribune - [Full Article]

A day after making their cuts, the Bucs made their bed, officially naming the strapping rookie out of Kansas State, Josh Freeman their backup quarterback behind veteran Byron Leftwich.

Freeman was elevated to the No..2 spot following the trade of Luke Mccown to Jacksonville on Saturday night, with second-year pro Josh Johnson moving up to No..3 on the depth chart.

Morris said he expects his prized first-round pick to be more efficient in an enhanced role.

"Everything we do has a thought process in Josh Freeman," Morris said. "Everything we do has to. We are married to him. Everything we do around that position, around this team, around this organization, the Tampa Bay area … we clean the street on MacDill, it's going to be around Freeman. That's just what it has to be."
