Josh Freeman began this week as the Buccaneers starter.

Now, towards the end of the week, he has lost his job as the quarterback of the Buccaneers. And he has requested a trade out of Tampa to play elsewhere.

At halftime of the San Francisco 49ers-St. Louis Rams game on the NFL Network, NFL reporter Ian Rapoport said that Freeman has lost the Buccaneers locker room. And this was before his benching on Wednesday.

According to Rapoport, the players were not upset with his benching. Plus, they already believed that rookie quarterback Mike Glennon is a better leader than Freeman, who has already been in the league for four years.

Also, Mike Silver has reported that Freeman has no trade value, which was previously reported here. Yet, he still wants out of Tampa and would love for the Bucs to trade him.

Freeman could be with the Bucs until October 29th when the NFL trade deadline expires. It would be skeptical for any team to give up a draft pick for Freeman due to his $8-plus million dollar contract.

Freeman will be a free agent after the season.
