Vikings and Colts quarterback Josh Freeman, most recently with the Canadian Football League’s Montreal Alouettes, is retiring, he told the team on Saturday. Freeman was a first-round pick in 2009 out of Kansas State. Freeman put together one of the most decorated careers of any Wildcat quarterback, setting program records for passing yards and passing touchdowns during his three seasons in Manhattan.

He decided to forgo his final year of eligibility, and Tampa Bay took him with the 17th overall pick. Freeman had to wait until roughly halfway through the season before making his starting debut, a win over Green Bay in which he tossed three touchdowns.
After brief stays with the Giants and Dolphins in which he saw no game action during the 2014 season, Freeman ended up in the now-defunct Fall Experimental Football League with the Brooklyn Bolts in 2015. With the Colts decimated by injury, they added Freeman in late December, 2015. He ended up starting the final game of the regular season, throwing for 149 yards, a score and an interception in a 30-24 win. Freeman had multiple workouts with Canadian Football League teams before signing a two-year deal with the Alouettes on January 12, 2018.
