01:01 PM ET 03.06 | Words are nice, but Freeman's rookie contract expires after next season, meaning the Bucs are running out of time to show how they really feel. Freeman's new agent, Erik Burkhardt, says an introductory meeting with Tampa's front office at the combine was encouraging. "It was really positive," Burkhardt told The Tampa Tribune. "They said they definitely believe in Josh, that he is their guy, that they want to reach their goals with him and that they know he is capable of doing the job and are committed to him."

Mark Sanchez (same draft class) got a 3 year $20 million guaranteed money contract last off-season.

From the stats I'm looking at, Freeman was better, is better and is going to be better in the future...

Freeman should hold out for Sanchez Money.

I think the Bucs want to see one more year out of Freeman before they make a long term commitment.

They already said Freeman ain't getting a new deal this year...

If they'd quit tap dancing and just give him decent money, make a commitment and then coach him up they've got a chance for him to be pretty damn good. If they play this cat and mouse game for the next year they might as well cut him now because his head will be all screwed up.
