An article on ESPN says Josh is down from 255 pounds to 235 pounds.

I don't know if anybody posted this yet, but what do you guys think? Will this help increase his mobility? Will we see him running more?

BIG MAC AND BIG SACK!

10 pounds lower than his college weight wow. Josh will be running in some touchdowns this year.

Really?   "argued to death"....    glad I missed opening up that thread.

Go get Bridgewater.   Do what it takes.

    Certainly his stamina will be better.
Now that the "Olsen experiment" is in our rear view mirror and we've added some new toys on offense, by mid-season we should be a very good offensive team.

I was never a big Freeman fan but this was the most encouraging offseason thing that happened in my opinion. Freeman was a threat to take off running his whole career until he came to the Bucs... I thought that was a waste. He ran a little bit for us but teams were never really worried about him running or anything. Now, hopefully, the threat of Freeman taking off running, Jackson stretching the field, Williams and Winslow being on the field with Jackson, and an improved Oline with two probowl guards, Blount and Martin are going to destroy.

    Yep, I strongly suspect Olsen wanted Freeman to become more of a pocket passer last season, which from my observation Josh is a lot less comfortable with. He actually looked more accurate throwing the ball when his feet were on the move than when he's got them planted.

I'm really curious to see his style of play at that weight.    I may end up liking him, who knows?

I wonder if he isnt as strong. Being hard to tackle was one of the things that allowed him to save many plays.

I think Olson said to stay in the pocket last year. This year who knows. The question is if he gets hurt is Olvoskly a legit replacement.

He's still the biggest QB the Bucs have ever had.

You can see on the pictures that he has lost fat, not muscles in the offseason. So I still think he will be hard to bring down for the defenders.

Really excited about Freeman for this season.

Needs to worry more about his accuracy and less with his mobility.

2009 and 2010 Freeman would to completely disagree. His ability to run was keeping Ds honest then. He had the 2nd most rushing yards for a QB in 2010 only behind Vick.   He also had a much better season than QB ever at that age. Than a brilliant Olson tried to turn him into Brees last year......that was a waste.
