The Buccaneers are considering making Josh Freeman their inactive third quarterback on Sunday against the Cardinals, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The demotion would come one night after Freeman said he wanted to be traded during an unauthorized interview with ESPN.

Coach Greg Schiano announced on Wednesday that rookie Mike Glennon would be the team's starter Sunday, with Freeman serving as backup.

FARRAR: Did the Bucs' scheme sink Josh Freeman?

From the Times:

The Bucs encouraged Freeman to be available to the media both Wednesday and Thursday, but he declined.

“Josh just needed his voice to be heard,’’ agent Erik Burkhardt told the Times of the decision to make Freeman available to ESPN.

“If you want things to change something has to change,'' Freeman said. "At the end of the day, yes, I think that moving forward that is going to be the best option.''
