Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman arrived at training camp down a good amount of weight. The fourth year quarterback showed up down 20 pounds at the outset of training camp, according to a tweet by Buccaneers writer Jenna Laine.
#Bucs QB Josh Freeman officially starting camp weighing 237. He was 257 before his weight loss. Should be more mobile and agile.— JennaLaineBucs (@JennaLaineBucs) July 26, 2012
Last season, Freeman played in 15 games, and while his yards and completion percentage went up from the last season, his interceptions shot up and he threw nine fewer touchdowns than in 2010. The hope is that with his loss of weight, he can be able to evade problems in the pocket a lot easier than before and possibly be able to move out and run a bit more if the need arises.
