The FXFL formally welcomed Freeman to the family on Twitter:
Freeman was the 17th overall pick by Tampa Bay in 2009, showing promise in his second season with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions in his second season. However, he had 45 touchdowns and 43 interceptions in 35 games over the next three seasons with the Buccaneers and Minnesota Vikings.
The Miami Dolphins signed Freeman twice last offseason, releasing him both times, though the 27-year-old told Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times in September that he was going to continue playing football in some capacity.
"It was a shame to see it end the way it did," Freeman said. "But I thought all the guys at the end were really battling. I want to keep playing, no question. I love playing football. At the end of the day, I'm going to give it all I can until I exhaust every option."
The FXFL is entering its second season and has four teams, with each one playing five games starting on October 2 and running through November 6.
Even though it's not the biggest stage for Freeman, it does get him playing in games and allows him to build a resume for NFL scouts and talent evaluators to look at for later this season or next year if they need a backup quarterback.
Freeman has a lot to prove after seemingly exhausting all of his chances over the past two years, but he's still young enough and plays a position of such great importance that teams will always be looking to see what his skill set might be able to offer.
