Be it college or pro, Freeman has never had a decent QB behind him.  since joining the Bucs he's had Josh Johnson, Rudy Carpenter, and Dan Orlovsky as his backups.  Not a single one with any kind of quality experience or success at this level.  I'd love to see Palmer come in take Freeman under his wing, the same as VJ did for MW last year.  With Ron Turner gone, and not really knowing what we have in John McNulty.  I really feel Palmer would be a great asset to JF not only from a competitive standpoint, but also as a mentor, further helping him with his mechanics and film study and breakdown.

i think this is a myth.

I didn't see that much of Carson Palmer last season - some highlights and the game against the bucs.  The Carson Palmer I remember is better than what Freeman has shown to date.  And the weapons at his disposal would be better than those he had in Oakland.  The price at 13 mil a year is out of the question.

I think the Bucs would have to pay him the 13 million of they traded for him.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

Palmer has not been the same since his knee injury, which is a shame cause he looked very promising at one time.

I watched some film on the guy after he signed with the raiders (I was thinking it was good for them that they had signed Palmer).

Something happened with his mechanics after he left cinci. Idk if it was the lack of wr talent compared to what he had with housh and CJ, or if the line wasn't nearly as good, or if something happed to him physically. Regardless, the guy will probably never be much more than a backup ever again.

Personally, I would rather the bucs draft a QB in the latter rounds and see if sully and Co can develop.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Palmer much like Kolb is dismissed but on a team with worse support structures than Freeman had was statistically better.  Plus, Palmer was a 4000 yard passer with bad cornerbacks and that makes him money around here right?

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

I think that it's a backup QBs dream to play in Tampa. You have 2 great WRs, Doug Martin, a good oline, and a QB that could play himself out of a starting position.

Timothy Tebow is coming as part of the Revis deal.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Yup.

Palmer lost it after the knee injury.  Probably rattled his cage.  It happens.

Palmer had a pretty bad shoulder injury which probably has more to do with his problems currently than his knee injury.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

This flies in the face of the "Schiano Effect"   I do not understand...

;)

Actually a washed up desperate QB who is about to be cut and lose his fat contract is exactly the type of player I would expect to want to come here.
