08:09 AM ET 09.15 | As widely reported, Josh Freeman missed the Bucs team photo a week ago, and Greg Schiano claimed there have been other incidents of tardiness by the quarterback. The two have attempted to publicly patch things up and "play nice," but the future certainly looks murky, to say the least. Freeman is in the final year of his original rookie contract and Tampa Bay management currently doesn't seem motivated to extend him beyond it. Good-guy general manager Mark Dominik said last month that there won't be an extension during the year, and that the two sides will address the issue next offseason.Way back in 1991, then-rookie quarterback Brett Favre overslept on the morning the Atlanta Falcons were taking their team picture. When a groggy Favre arrived late to the shoot, coach Jerry Glanville would not allow him into the picture. Figuratively he kept Favre out of the picture for the remainder of the season as well, burying him on the depth chart and playing him only in embarrassing mop-up roles, and then unceremoniously dealing him to Green Bay in the subsequent offseason.

Perhaps he'll send out photos individually too. :-)

Actually I saw Favre in those first few seasons and he wasn't that good. Some might even say he really stunk up the place.

Jerry Glanville + Greg Schiano= 2 of the worst NFL coaches ever.

Maybe we can call in and get cool wallet-size pix of him.

Photo Shop him in the photo that no one ever sees. Another problem solved. Heck, photo shop a click chick in the photo and maybe players walking by it will stop to look at it on their way to the shower room.

LOL. Bobby Layne was still groggy on game day. At half time he'd say, Are you guys ready to play??

The media is misinformed if they think Freeman is in Schiano's dog house because of a missed team photo.
