Former Bucs tight end and current Buccaneers Radio Network analyst Anthony Becht said in no uncertain terms yesterday that the Bucs should try to extend Josh Freeman’s contract this offseason.
“The body of work shows he’s a guy we have to keep,” Becht told J.P. Peterson on WDAE-AM 620.
Becht explained that he worked with plenty of quarterbacks in a career that spanned 11 seasons and five teams, and Bucs fans should understand that they could do a lot worse than Freeman.
Becht said the Bucs should offer Freeman second-tier quarterback money.
“If he doesn’t take it, then great. Go prove yourself,” Becht said.
