There really is no understating the importance of the 2013 campaign for Josh Freeman, who will be a free agent at season's end. A great performance from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB could secure him a huge contract and job security for years to come. A poor season likely would destine him to a future as a backup in the NFL. Clearly, his season-opening performance against the New York Jets hinted at the latter being the eventual outcome.
