Confused why Josh Freeman is not playing for the Minnesota Vikings? Perhaps its an attempt to re-sign him for 2014 and get a good draft pick in the process, or he’s no good or… who really knows.

Here’s one theory from the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

The way the Josh Freeman fiasco has turned out, some people are beginning to wonder whether the signing of the former Tampa Bay QB at the same time the Vikings announced their private seat licensing plans was merely coincidental or a slick attempt at marketing.

If the Vikings do believe in Freeman it’s worth asking why he’s not playing…. Leslie Frazier has to be on the hot seat entering Week 15 with a 3-9-1 record.
