Josh Freeman just hit the open market. The cannon-armed disgruntled quarterback was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday in an expected move after a well-publicized rift with the team.

The Raiders haven’t declared interest in Freeman after fifth-year veteran clears waivers nor did they slam the door on the idea. When asked about interest in Freeman coach Dennis Allen stayed on the fence.

“I don’t know” Allen said.

Freeman certainly has a fan in Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson.

Olson was Tampa Bay’s offensive coordinator from 2009-11 during Freeman’s most productive period. Olson developed Freeman into a solid NFL quarterback and has a system that fits the quarterback’s style.

Olson was disappointed to hear about Freeman’s in-season release.
