Some Quotes From Bucs Minicamp

Raheem Morris on Josh Freeman

“an athletic, big, giant human that’s walking the planet and I’m glad he’s on our team.”

“Josh, he went out there today and took control of the huddle,” said Morris. “I don’t believe he had one bad snap besides the guard tripping him earlier in the walk-through. Other than that, he got every snap, delivered the football, controlled the huddle well, made some nice throws, did some things we liked today. It was pretty exciting.”

Raheem Morris on 3rd round pick Roy Miller

“He’s more of a run-stopper but had five-and-a-half sacks [at Texas]. He’s an awfully strong young man and can get some push, which is awfully important as quick as the ball comes out in today’s game.”

On the starting QB

“I’ll answer that one like this: The starting quarterback thing, I’ll let you guys know the third preseason game. I want these guys to compete. I mean, I’ve got Luke McCown, I’ve got Byron Leftwich, I’ve got Josh Johnson, I’ve got Josh Freeman and I’ve got Brian Griese still on staff right now. I need these guys to get in here and just compete, and I want to play the best one out of those five guys and go to work. Now, obviously I’m going to camp with just four but I want to play the best one out of those guys.”

    I recently found out, to my surprise, that not only was Freeman an “early outer,” he never redshirted while at K.State. VERY interesting. If he was at FSU 15 or 20 years ago, he would be a rising RS junior in 2009, & just ready to start his first college game.
