Buccaneers | Josh Freeman not on sidelines

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 09:55:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Josh Freeman was not on the sidelines during the team's Week 4 loss because head coach Greg Schiano said it was a "mutual decision." Freeman didn't dress out and watched the game from a suite with the other inactive players. QB Dan Orlovsky was the backup to QB Mike Glennon against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: It's gone from bad to worse for Freeman in Tampa. It's very clear now that he has no future with the team and virtually zero chance of winning the starting job back. It's now just a matter of if the Bucs can find a trade partner or if they outright release him.

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 09:12:15 -0700

Colts | If Peyton Manning isn't ready, team may look for another QB

Sun, 21 Aug 2011 08:56:20 -0700

All options remain open for the Indianapolis Colts at quarterback, including potentially signing a veteran option to replace QB Peyton Manning (neck) in Week 1 if Manning is not healthy enough to play. "It's always been something where we hope he can be ready, and we still hope. But it's possible he won't," team owner Jim Irsay said.

Manning is still on the active PUP working on his rehabilitation from neck surgery to repair a bulging disk. "I was short-changed a little bit by the lockout and I'm going to need every bit of the next two weeks, and then I can give you more of an update with where I am," Manning said. "I have made progress, but I still have some work to do. When I'm healthy enough, I'll be able to play."

Manning has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery, and team doctors have noted the regeneration of right triceps strength is the key. Plus, nerves come back at different paces. The Colts want to make sure Manning is 100 percent healthy before he returns full speed; they do not want him to return too early and other shoulder or elbow problems develop because of it.

Backup QBs Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky have struggled in the preseason, combining for a passer rating of 34.4. They have generated just one touchdown and two field goals, going 19 of 43 for 273 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions.

If the team were to bring in a veteran quarterback, they would have to scale back the offense and look for him to be more of a game manager.

Texans | Dan Orlovsky's contract restructured

Thu, 09 Sep 2010 04:00:37 -0700

The Houston Texans have restructured the contract of QB Dan Orlovsky, according to John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle. Orlovsky's restructured deal calls for him to make a base salary of $850,000 - a reduction from $2.25 million. He can make up the difference by earning $25,000 for every game he's the backup quarterback. Orlovsky also can earn $100,000 for every game he's the starting quarterback - a maximum of 10 games and $1 million. Orlovsky was scheduled to earn $2.75 million next season. Instead, he'll receive a base salary of $1.375 million. He can earn back the difference if he's No. 2 for one game this season. He will be the No. 2 quarterback for Week 1, which means he won't be taking a pay cut next year.
