Freeman planning three-day Bucs minicamp later this month

Josh Freeman isn't satisfied with merely leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through player-organized workouts, he wants to hold a three-day minicamp that includes two-a-day workouts, *The Tampa Tribune* reported.

Freeman's potential stands alone

Josh Freeman was the third quarterback taken in the 2009 draft, but the growth in his game now give him the most upside among the passers from the class, says Bucky Brooks.

Freeman hopes as many as 45 Bucs participate in the minicamp at the end of June.

"I don't know about some of the free agents and rookies, but we're hoping to have about 45 guys there," Freeman said Monday. "We're going to try to get everybody in and go over some scheme stuff and even install some stuff.

"I held on to some of my playbooks from the (regular) season and we're putting together scripts and everything and just trying to get things back to normal as much as possible."

Freeman plans to pass out the information to those attending the informal workouts and then rely on them to pass information along to other teammates.

"It's usually pretty fundamental stuff (that you work on during the offseason), so I'd say that with offensive guys, the receivers and all, we're right on pace with where we'd be (without a lockout)," Freeman said.

"We talk about different plays. We run through different plays. We talk about different coverages and everyone is being extremely professional about it. Everybody's putting the work in."

Freeman has been pleased with the attendance at the workouts.

"We're young and we're hungry," he said. "And when the lockout ends it's going to be a level playing field, but it's also going to be about going out and getting wins and that's the only thing that's on this team's mind."
