The offseason began with speculation and reports that Greg Schiano did not see Josh Freeman as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' long-term answer at quarterback.
In the months since, Schiano has done his best to shoot down that line of thinking. The coach has spoken positively about Freeman's progress, and he did it again Monday when NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano asked Schiano who his quarterback is.
"We only have one," Schiano said on "NFL Total Access." "It's Josh Freeman."
This is a big year for Freeman who is in the final year of his contract. We rank Freeman 16th among QBs which makes him a middle of the road QB2. He's got real nice weapons around him like WR Vincent Jackson and WR Mike Williams along with RB Doug Martin.
