Well, somehow that's not a shock.

the expensive signing of Freeman that stood out as the team's largest blunder

I strongly disagree with that. It was 2 or 3 million dollars for not even a full season. That's nothing in NFL money. The money wasn't going to go somewhere more important. It was well worth the money to find out Freeman wasn't the guy this way than possibly pursuing him in the offseason for more years and money. Best case scenario, he reminded the Vikings why he was a pro bowler. Worst case scenario, he reminded the Vikings why TB kicked him to the curb. Oh and the Vikes had to cut Matthew Bacon Cheeseburger loose? No big deal.

Ponder and several players on defense being thrown out there as starters were the team's largest blunders. Freeman had minimal impact.

Leslie Frazier did everything he could to sell players on his gamble, despite signs Josh Freeman wasn't ready to play less than two weeks after signing with the Minnesota Vikings in October.


Four people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports that Freeman was late for numerous meetings in his roughly three months with the Vikings. A third player said Freeman often was among the last players to the facility.


To players, the decision was a show of desperation from a well-liked coach who was fired Monday with one year left on his contract
