Freeman tells Glazer a decision is coming tonight


As we surmised earlier today (correctly for a change), quarterback Josh Freeman will make a decision about his next destination after Sunday’s game end.

Jay Glazer of FOX said he spoke to Freeman on Saturday night, and Freeman said that he wants to see what happens today.

That’s the smart approach. Regardless of which teams are or aren’t interested now, more could be interested after injuries coming later today, or tonight.

Glazer also says the Raiders and Vikings are the frontrunners. The Bills also are interested, but Freeman realizes that his stint likely would end once EJ Manuel returns from a knee injury.

As to Oakland, Glazer said that coach Dennis Allen spoke to Freeman by phone on Friday, and that Freeman would walk right in as the starter. (Which likely is news to Terrelle Pryor.)

In Minnesota, where we’ve heard Freeman is the most interested in playing, his arrival would likely mean that Matt Cassel would take a seat, and that Christian Ponder would stay there.

Either way, we’ll know more late tonight, likely after the Chargers and Raiders game ends at 2:30 a.m. ET Monday or thereabouts.
