Cross Jaguars off the Josh Freeman sweepstakes list

Immediately upon benching quarterback-in-a-contract year Josh Freeman, there were reports that the Bucs were putting him on the trading block.

At least one of the usual suspects in the quarterback market is letting it be known they’re not interested.

According to Mark Long of the Associated Press, the Jaguars have “zero interest” in trading for Freeman.

They made a degree of sense, because they have cap space to accommodate Freeman, a bad group of quarterbacks, and a clear need for a long-term answer at the position.

While Freeman might not be that guy, he’s shown more indications of being trustworthy than Blaine Gabbert or Chad Henne have in their careers.

Obviously, what this means is the Jaguars don’t want to do anything that might block their eventual acquisition of you-know-who.

Oh, it’s a joke. Settle down. E-mail your manifesto to somebody else.
