07:39 PM ET 01.07 | There is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to Josh Freeman's future in Tampa Bay. Fans have gotten on his case for his bi-polar play, as Freeman can be lights-out perfect as often as he's bone chillingly awful. We saw both the best and worst of Freeman in 2012, which leads to the question: what will we see in 2013? Whatever it is, it better be pretty damn good, as according to the Tampa Times the Buccaneers have no immediate plans to extend Josh Freeman's expiring contract. Freeman's deal expires at the end of next season and unless he plays so impressively that the Buccaneers are forced to give him a long-term deal, next year could be the last we see of Freeman in Tampa.

I told him to skip the Tony Romo QB Camp, but he wouldn't listen.

The problem is that they dont give guys time any more...they throw em into bad situations (bad personnel, coaching changes) as rookies then in year 3 or 4 when they aren't a top tier QB, they move on...teams needs to develop their own players more, you dont see the top teams changing QBs every other year

Freeman's had a new offensive coordinator for all but one season of his NFL career...
Some stability might help his cause; If he isn't better after this year send him packing!
