Raiders interested in Josh Freeman

With Josh Freeman released by the Buccaneers this week, one team is already showing a lot of interest in the former Kansas State quarterback.

The Oakland Raiders are "definitely interested" in Freeman, according to a report from the Tampa Bay Times. A lot of this interest could be due to Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson's rapport with Freeman, with the two working together for three years with the Bucs.

Freeman's acquistion could disrupt a locker room dynamic, given that Terrelle Pryor has performed well as Oakland's starting quarterback this year. However, at this stage of their careers, Freeman is more of a complete quarterback with a bigger arm.

It may make sense for the Raiders to make the move to bring Freeman in.
