As expected recently benched Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. The decision was made in part because Freeman has played poorly through three weeks he conducted an interview with ESPN that wasn't authorized by the team and he reportedly missed "at least one maybe more meetings this week" according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Rookie third-round pick Mike Glennon will make his first NFL start (watch out mountains). And with Freeman on the sidelines in civvies veteran Dan Orlovsky will be the Bucs' No. 2 quarterback. Meanwhile CBS Sports NFL Insider La Canfora doesn't expect Freeman to remain in Tampa Bay much longer and the 2009 first-round pick said earlier this week that a trade out of town is probably in everyone's best interests.
