A recap of the day’s activities:
Josh Freeman. The quarterback the Seahawks face at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Sunday will not be the same wide-eyed rookie they played at Qwest Field last December.
In that ’09 game, Freeman was making his seventh NFL start for a team that would finish 3-13. Entering Sunday’s game, Freeman is the established starter on a team that is 8-6 and clinging to playoff aspirations. He has thrown a touchdown pass in 10 consecutive games, and has 18 through 14 games. He has thrown only one interception in the past five games, and his sixth for the season are the second-fewest among QBs with at least 400 attempts behind the Patriots’ Tom Brady (four).
Last season, Freeman had 10 TD passes and 18 picks.
“He was pretty raw when we played him last season,” Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. “You’re seeing a much more poised quarterback. He’s done a nice job, and he makes a lot of things happen on the run.”
