Josh Freeman could be back for opener

The Buccaneers seem confident that QB Josh Freeman – who broke the tip of his thumb on his throwing hand Saturday – will return for the team’s season opener. He’ll just have to play in a little bit of pain.

Until then, though, GM Mark Domenik, filling in for the absent Raheem Morris at the team’s news conference, told reporters he would like to sign another quarterback in the meantime.

As the St. Petersburg Times writes, that quarterback could be undrafted rookie free agent Jevan Snead – who was released by Tampa Bay at the end of last month.

“It is a broken bone in his thumb, so he's just got to let that actually fuse back together,” Domenik said. “But it's a lot about the swelling, it's about being able to grasp the football, to hold onto it and be accurate with the ball. But this week, he's going to be extremely limited to almost doing nothing, just to give him a chance to really get his body healthy and move forward from there.

"Injuries are part of it and you deal with that in every aspect of the game. I think every sport handles injuries the same way. It's just part of the nature of the beast. You just continue to prepare the guys behind them and I think our coaching staff has done a very good job with our two young quarterbacks in Josh Johnson and Rudy Carpenter. I think they both played their best game this last week, so you just have to prepare the guys behind them to step up if that were to happen. But certainly, we're looking forward to Josh being out there against the Cleveland Browns.''

As we pointed out here , having to play Johnson or Carpenter during the regular season wouldn’t be the ideal situation, considering Johnson is 0-4 as a starter and Carpenter has never played in an NFL game.

Milk and cookies for you

A late-night links round-up:

Though it’d make sense if the veterans absolutely hate the fact No. 1 pick Sam Bradford just got a $50 million guarantee without ever having played a down of NFL football, Tom Brady doesn’t seem upset about the deal. He tells a radio show, as captured by the Boston Herald that players of any sort (or experience) should be getting money.

Much has been made about Frank Gore’s party in Miami that ensnared a few collegiate players in the headlights of the NCAA and which might or might not have been paid for by an agent. Gore tells the Press Democrat that the controversy surprised him and he was the one who paid for the party.

Toby Gerhart missed the first day of training camp. Pat Williams, as mentioned in this 1500 ESPN story, didn’t appreciate it.

Unlike a certain NT in Washington, Cardinals OT Deuce Lutui, who says he weighs about 360 pounds, passed his conditioning test today. The Cardinals official site talked to him afterward.

Packers S Atari Bigby isn’t happy with his contract situation, as described by the Green Bay Press Gazette . Bigby, in all reality, should worry about retaining his starting spot over Morgan Burnett, because the ankle injury he suffered today won’t help.

Do you think former Ole Miss QB Jevan Snead wishes he stayed in school one more year? After the Buccaneers cut him today , I imagine the answer is probably, yes.

A few more first-round signings: Jason Pierre-Paul to the Giants for a ton of money . Joe Haden to the Browns for a ton of mone y. Demaryius Thomas to the Broncos for a ton of money . Kyle Wilson to the Jets for a ton of money .
