Freeman Getting Nods to Start Right Away?

The St.Petersburg Times reports that there is a lot of buzz about the Bucs turning to rookie Josh Freeman right away as the possible starting QB for the club in 2009:

Start the play clock for quarterback Josh Freeman. The Bucs are re-evaluating the plans for their first-round pick and will consider starting Freeman if he continues to progress in training camp. Quarterbacks coach Greg Olson said, “it’s not out of the question” Freeman takes the path that the Falcons’ Matt Ryan and the Ravens’ Joe Flacco took last year and starts as a rookie. Olson met with general manager Mark Dominik, coach Raheem Morris, pro scouting coordinator Doug Williams and other coaches, and they concluded they might need to accelerate Freeman’s development.
