Questioned by NFL, Bucs ask league to conclude leaks investigation

The Bucs have asked the NFL to quickly conclude their investigation into whether coach Greg Schiano or others violated the confidentiality of Josh Freeman's participation in the substance abuse program.

Schiano, general manager Mark Dominik and others already were questioned about the matter by NFL investigators several weeks ago.

"We do not believe it is appropriate to comment but the confidentiality provision of our drug program is critically important and a breach of that confidentiality by any party is a serious violation of our collectively bargained policy,'' NFL spokesman Greg Aeillo said recently.
 
Freeman, 25, who was released and is now the No. 3 quarterback at Minnesota, admitted to the “one-time mistake” of taking Ritalin rather than Adderall for his diagnosed ADHD. He said he then voluntarily admitted himself to the league’s testing program, and subsequently passed 46 different drug tests.

Freeman blamed unidentified members of the Bucs organization for disclosing confidential medical information. The Bucs are anxious to clear their name in the matter and that of thier head coach.





Josh Freeman says he’s making progress, wants to start

Vikings quarterback Josh Freeman, who was quickly made the starter after arriving in Minnesota but has been demoted from first string to third string, says he believes he can start for the Vikings again this year.
 
Freeman told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that he believes he is getting better within Minnesota’s offense and he hopes coach Leslie Frazier lets him start again.
 
“I’m making a lot of progress from my first game,” Freeman said. “I can’t speak for the coaches. I can’t speak for Leslie. I’m just working as hard as I can. When they need me to go in I plan to go in and play well, whenever that may be.”
 
At the moment, Freeman is behind both Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel on the Vikings’ depth chart, but he is eager to show he deserves to be No. 1.
 
“Nobody in the NFL doesn’t want to be the starter,” Freeman said.
 
After getting a chance to start in both Tampa Bay and Minnesota this season, and after playing poorly in both places, Freeman has a lot of work to do to convince anyone he deserves to be a starter again.
