Former QB Josh Freeman to play in Fall Experimental Football League

The career of well-traveled quarterback Josh Freeman is taking another unexpected turn.

Freeman will play for a minor league team in the Fall Experimental Football League, the league announced Tuesday.

Freeman, a first-round draft choice of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, was released earlier this month by the Miami Dolphins and hasn't taken a regular-season snap since Oct. 21, 2013, while with the Minnesota Vikings. He was out of football in 2014.

The FXFL will open its second season next month. Last year, it paid players about $1,000 per week. Freeman has been assigned to the Brooklyn Bolts franchise, which will play its first game on Oct. 2.
