Quarterback Josh Freeman has no current ties to any CFL team.
The Redblacks added Freeman to their negotiation list on Saturday, June 17, but he’s since been dropped by the club.
That happened after the 29-year-old worked out for Montreal and he was spotted at the Alouettes final pre-season game. The move was a clear attempt by the Redblacks to keep Freeman from signing in Montreal. All’s fair in love, war, and the neg list, but the interest in Freeman has waned.
Freeman’s first foray into Canadian football was attending Calgary Stampeders mini-camp from April 29 to May 1, but he was not offered a contract by the Stamps.
The Kansas State product was a first-round pick, 17th overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009. He started 61 games over seven seasons with three different teams, compiling 81 touchdowns, 68 interceptions, 13,873 yards and a 77.6 quarterback rating. His last start came in January 2016 with the Indianapolis Colts and he was out of pro football completely last season.
