Aikman expects Bucs' Freeman to have a "great career"



Former Cowboys star quarterback Troy Aikman, in town as a FOX NFL analyst for Friday's game, said he likes the changes the Bucs have made and believes in quarterback Josh Freeman.

"I like Josh a lot," Aikman said after watching Wednesday's practice. "When he was coming into the league, we had a chance to do a preseason game of his and we had him just one other time against Green Bay last year. I think he's a really talented player. Obviously he was exceptional a couple years ago. I think that his play last year was pretty reflective of the team, high expectations and just didn't play with the same kind of efficiency. But there's a lot of reasons for that, and I think that some of the things that they're going to be doing within the offense and the way coach Schiano wants to approach this thing, I think it's going to help him. And I expect him to go on and continue to have a great career, I really do. I think a lot of him."
