Recommendation: That means his rookie deal will expire after 2013. If he plays great, the team will use its franchise tag on Freeman and try to sign him to a long-term deal. Needless to say the Bucs', while still not giving up Freeman by any means, are not thrilled with his poor showing at the end of the 2012 season, as they are looking to bring in a competitive veteran QB this offseason. The positive is Freeman will be playing for a new contract in 2013, so if things go right he could improve on his 2012 totals of 4,065 yards and 27 touchdowns.
