Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman reportedly overslept last Monday, causing him to miss a team photo shoot.

Josh Freeman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers overslept on Monday, resulting in a missed team photo shoot. 

This was confirmed by NFL.com's Dan Hanzus, who said the team has addressed the issue internally and that Freeman has a history of being late for other team-related events. 

Schiano did say he trusts Freeman, who was not voted team captain for the first time in four years. He also spoke about the players-only meeting that took place last week. 

"I do trust Josh. Josh and I share a lot of things together. 

"I was aware there was going to be a players-only meeting before the game which I'm always fine with. I trust the players and the leadership, and if the team wants to talk among themselves, I think it's healthy. I was not aware of any question on captain's vote, because there isn't any."

For his part, Freeman went straight to the point, per Hanzus' colleague, Chris Wesseling. He said,"Basically I overslept. Point blank."

Wesseling also adds the missed photo shoot is an incident which the quarterback feels "badly about" and that it, plus the other instances when he was tardy, had nothing to do with him not being team captain anymore. 

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud writes "Schiano insisted he did not alter the results of the vote" for offensive team captaincy, which had wide receiver Vincent Jackson and guard Davin Joseph winning the honor. 

Freeman, who voted for both of them, feels they are "great leaders." 

"The simple fact is Davin and Vincent are great leaders. Everybody wants to make it out like it's a demotion. I don't look at it like that. They don't look at it like that. Essentially, the conversations, the day-to-day actions are the same."

 The 25-year-old Freeman went just 15-of-31 passing in the Buccaneers' 18-17 loss to the New York Jets last Sunday. He did finish with 210 passing yards with a touchdown and an interception.

Minnesota Vikings: Position Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis at Quarterback

13th Annual Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational Gala At ARIA Resort & Casino
The 2013 version of the Minnesota Vikings deployed a quarterback carousel that was puzzling to say the least. Who started at the most important position in sports each week seemed to be arbitrary and hinted at a tug of war between former head coach Leslie Frazier and general manager Rick Spielman. The "who's on first?" nature reached a peak in October, when the team started the just-signed Tampa Bay Buccaneers castoff Jos ...

It’s been a tough run of late for Josh Freeman, so let’s look on the bright side: he is clearly the best unsigned quarterback in late-offseason free agency, the first player at his position who should get a call if there’s an injury.
