The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have lagged behind the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons as far as offseason workout attendance goes, but based on some remarks by Josh Freeman, they might just force Atlanta and New Orleans to re-examine their respective workloads. Freeman says he hopes for about 45 teammates to attend a three-day minicamp in a couple weeks.
While any players attempting to rally up unpaid and uninsured football players to play football in the middle of the summer in Florida should be commended, Freeman deserves even bigger props for trying to get Tampa Bay players off the streets. Aqib Talib's offseason alone would've made for the most harrowing season of Hard Knocks ever.
The Carolina Panthers are also getting some work in after producing very little on-field news in comparison to their NFC South rivals as of late.
