MINNEAPOLIS -- Josh Freeman has a new team, Minnesota has a new young quarterback and Tampa Bay has moved on. Stitched NCAA Football Jerseys . This was quite the eventful bye week for the Vikings and Buccaneers. Freemans agent, Erik Burkhardt, revealed the move in an exclamatory one-word tweet about his client Sunday night: "Vikings!!!" Burkhardt then confirmed to The Associated Press in a phone interview that the 25-year-old agreed to a deal worth $3 million for the rest of the season. Giving Freeman that much money for only 12 games signals a big step away from Christian Ponder in Minnesota. Freeman was released by the Buccaneers on Thursday, a week after he was benched in favour of rookie Mike Glennon. Ponder, the Vikings first-round draft pick in 2011, struggled in the first three games of the season, all losses. He threw five interceptions and lost two fumbles and didnt get much help from an offensive line that couldnt keep the pressure off of him, or open holes for star running back Adrian Peterson. Matt Cassel took over in the last game while Ponder rested his injured ribs, and he gave the struggling unit a jolt. Cassel brought some much-needed rhythm and timing to the offence while throwing for 248 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-27 win over Pittsburgh in London. But with Peterson still in his prime and an upgraded group of receivers with veteran Greg Jennings and rookie Cordarrelle Patterson, the Vikings need to settle this critical position that has been in flux since Brett Favre faded in 2010 and retired for good after that season. Cassel is 31, and hes coming off consecutive rough years with the Kansas City Chiefs. Leslie Frazier said Monday that Freeman will not play this Sunday because theres not enough time for him learn the offence before the team plays in Carolina this weekend. Frazier also said that Ponder remains the starter, though hes recovering from a broken rib that kept out against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week four. If Ponder isnt healthy enough to start Sunday, Cassel will make his second consecutive start on Sunday for the Vikings. The winless Bucs released Freeman after general manager Mark Dominik contacted every other team in the NFL in an unsuccessful attempt to trade Freeman, a 4,000-yard passer a year ago and the teams career leader with 1,144 completions and 80 touchdowns. Freeman is owed the remaining $6.25 million on the contract he signed as the third quarterback selected in the 2009 draft behind Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez. Coach Greg Schiano benched Freeman after he completed only 45.7 per cent of his passes and posted a league-low quarterback rating of 59.3 through three games. Freeman threw for 4,065 yards, 27 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 2012, but his inconsistent play down the stretch contributed to the team losing five of six games and failing to make the playoffs for the fifth straight year. He led the Bucs to a 10-6 record -- though not a post-season berth -- while throwing for 25 TDs and only six interceptions in his first full year as a starter in 2010. Freemans release capped a tumultuous month in which he overslept before missing a team photo shoot, was not voted a captain for time since his rookie year, and reportedly missed at least one other team meeting. This week, the saga took a messy turn when Freeman released a statement through his agent, saying he had Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and entered the NFL substance-abuse program more than a year ago after mistakenly taking Ridilin instead of Adderall to treat the condition. The NFL Players Association is investigating the quarterbacks claim that someone in the Bucs organization leaked confidential information about him being in the program to the media. According to Freeman and Burkhardt, the quarterback has passed all 46 tests administered by the league. Freeman was declared inactive for last weeks game and watched Glennons debut from a suite at Raymond James Stadium. Schiano called that a "mutual decision." Authentic NCAA Jerseys . According to a report from CSN Bay Area, the 49ers are bracing for 6-8 game suspension for their outside linebacker. Wholesale NCAA Jerseys China . While hell be dialed in to that tournament on a course he loves, you can forgive him if his eyes glance down the calendar just a bit, towards April. http://www.cheapncaajerseyscustom.com/ . -- What Anthony Jennings lacked in experience, LSU more than compensated for with a talented supporting cast in the Outback Bowl.ST. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Fog prevented downhill racers from getting their Olympic dress rehearsal. Poor visibility on the middle section of the course forced World Cup officials to call off a mens downhill on Saturday, the last speed race before the Sochi Olympics. A womens giant slalom in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, was also cancelled because of poor weather. The start of the race was postponed several times and pushed back more than two hours before officials finally gave up. "It was the right decision," overall and downhill World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway said. The fog never lifted around the middle of the already shortened Corviglia course. The downhill on Feb. 9 is the first Alpine event of the Sochi Games. A giant slalom is scheduled for Sunday in St. Moritz. The races in St. Moritz replaced the ones that had been scheduled for Garmisch-Partenkirchen but had to bee called off for lack of snow in the German resort. NCAA Jerseys From China. Too much snow and fog were the problem in St. Moritz. Heavy snowfall forced the cancellation of downhill training on Friday. It still snowed on Saturday, although not that heavily, but this time fog descended on the course to force another cancellation. Svindal said the Olympics were not on his mind as he waited, in vain, for the start. "You want to win a World Cup race, you are not thinking of Sochi. Its exciting to win a World Cup race," Svindal said. With race officials constantly inspecting the course, Svindal said, they were in a better position to judge the conditions. "Its too bad but thats the way it is. The fog is moving in and out and maybe you can have one or two racers on the course and then it would have to be stopped," he said. "It wouldnt be safe and it wouldnt be fair." ' ' '
