Josh Freeman Emerging As Leader After Organizing Offseason Workouts

The Tampa Bay Bucs are one of many teams that are organizing unofficial team workouts while they aren't allowed inside the team facilities due to the NFL Lockout. Like many of the teams that have held these workouts, the Bucs version was organized by their quarterback, Josh Freeman. Heading into his third year, Freeman seems to be emerging as the leader of the Bucs team, according to NFL Gridiron Gab.

"There is no question he is the leader of this football team," Winslow told The Tampa Tribune this week. "He’s the dude. I’m not leaving him. If it’s my decision, I’m never leaving him. I want to play with him until he retires. I wouldn’t want to play with anybody else."

According to that article, about 30 or so Bucs have been taking part in these workouts. Bucs coach Raheem Morris isn't allowed to be at these workouts, or even to have any contact with his players, but he said that he is fired up about the new leadership role that Freeman appears to be taking.

For more information on these workouts, keep it locked to this stream, but for more on the Bucs in general, check out Bucs Nation.
