TAMPA, Fla. -- Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman has decided to retire from the CFL, the Montreal Alouettes announced Saturday.
Freeman, 30, signed a two-year deal with the Alouettes in January, in an attempt to resurrect his once-promising NFL career. But he found himself at the bottom of the depth chart one week into their training camp.
"We would like to thank Josh for his work and dedication. He was a consummate professional throughout camp," Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement. "We respect his decision and we wish him the best in the future."
