NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning" that Freeman's agent has talked to about 10 teams, including the Buffalo Bills, according to sources informed of the quarterback's situation.
Why would the Raiders look to add another quarterback?
"General manager Reggie McKenzie comes from the Ron Wolfe school of building a team: You can never have too many," Rapoport said.
NFL Media columnist Michael Silver added there still is some trepidation on both sides, and a face-to-face meeting between Freeman and Raiders brass could take place early this week, per sources. Silver said if Freeman went to Oakland, the Raiders would view him as the starter over Terrelle Pryor.
Silver included the San Francisco 49ers as a team that has some interest in Freeman, but discussions might not get off the ground because of Freeman's desire to be a starting quarterback.
Fox Sports reported Sunday that the Minnesota Vikings also are interested in Freeman. According to the report, Freeman already has spoken with coach Leslie Frazier and general manager Rick Spielman on the phone. With Christian Ponder on a short leash, Minnesota might be a place where Freeman could contend for a starting spot.
