After the latest controversy prompting Freeman to defend himself, it sounds like Bucs general manager Mark Dominik will be busy during the bye week trying to move the former starting quarterback. However, it's unlikely there will be many trade partners or great offers.

The trade deadline is Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. ET, so in theory the Bucs could hold out a few more weeks hoping a team loses its starting quarterback and becomes desperate. However, the most recent reports indicate the team has come around to Freeman's initial belief that it would be better for both sides if they parted ways. The sooner, the better.
