Embattled quarterback Josh Freeman has been released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to multiple reports. The development comes after Tampa Bay spent several days trying to trade him but evidently couldn't find a taker. In cutting 2009 first-round pick, the Buccaneers are on the hook for $6 million in remaining salary. Freeman, the No. 17 pick, reportedly was fined by the team twice in the last month for conduct detrimental to the team. Previously, he had been stripped of his team captain designation and missed the team picture because he overslept.

Leslie Frazier became the first official casualty of NFL's so-called Black Monday, losing his job as Minnesota's head coach after the leading the Vikings to a 5-10-1 record in his third full season at the helm. He is the league's third head coach to be fired this season, following the Houston Texans' Gary Kubiak earlier this month and Cleveland Brown's Rob Chudzinski on Sunday. Frazier took over for the fired Brad Childress in Week 12 of the 2010 season and led the Vikings to a 3-3 record down the stretch.

The winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers have benched ineffective quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon for Sunday's home game against Arizona, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday. That's a reversal from what Coach Greg Schiano said two days earlier when he told reporters Freeman remained the starter. The 6-foot-6 Glennon was a third-round pick (No. 73) out of North Carolina State. He will become the third rookie quarterback to start this season, joining Buffalo's EJ Manuel and Geno Smith of the New York Jets.

Christian Ponder appears to be the Minnesota Vikings' starting quarterback this week against the Green Bay Packers since recently acquired Josh Freeman is suffering from concussion-like symptoms. Freeman made his debut in a 23-7 loss to the previously winless New York Giants on Monday night, completing only 20 of 53 passes for 190 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Frazier said that Freeman, who showed no signs of sustaining a concussion during the game, was not feeling well Tuesday.

Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman has nine career victories, six of them fourth-quarter comebacks. Cleveland running back Peyton Hillis has emerged as one of the NFL's toughest ballcarriers to bring down. Baltimore tackle Michael Oher has locked down the most difficult position on the line, and ? in keeping with the book and movie that chronicled his teenage years ? he's now protecting the blind side. They are but three of the league's up-and-coming players, emerging household names.

Safety was the NFL's focus this off-season. The focus on Sunday? Safeties. There were three of them in the first quarters of games Sunday, with the New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and Jacksonville Jaguars each picking up two points. The Jets scored when Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman fumbled out of the end zone. The safety for the Steelers came when Tennessee running back Darius Reynauld was tackled in the end zone. And Jacksonville scored when J.T. Thomas blocked a punt out of the back of the end zone.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers haven't been on "Monday Night Football" in eight years, but the expectation of stage fright won't be on the home team. It will be on Curtis Painter, the visiting Indianapolis Colts quarterback whose team displayed so little trust in him heading into a season without injured Peyton Manning, it brought veteran Kerry Collins out of retirement. With Collins suffering concussion symptoms last week versus Pittsburgh, the Colts turned to Painter, who badly overthrew receiver Pierre Garcon for a probable fourth-quarter touchdown.

Vincent Jackson signed a reported five-year, $55.6-million contract Tuesday with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Pierre Garcon agreed to a five-year, $42.5-million deal with the Washington Redskins on the same day to help start the NFL's free agency period with a bang. Both teams invested a lot of money looking to improve their receiving corps. But which team's deal made more sense? Jackson, who has spent all seven years of his pro career with the San Diego Chargers, appears to give Tampa Bay the deep threat it has needed.

The Kansas City Chiefs have suspended running back Larry Johnson until Nov. 9. The club is off this week, so Johnson will sit out one game, at Jacksonville on Nov. 8. The three-sentence news release issued Wednesday night said only that Johnson was suspended for conduct detrimental to the club. Johnson used a gay slur twice within a 24-hour period Sunday night and Monday, first on his Twitter account and then again Monday morning after telling reporters he was not talking.

Would the NFL's only winless team please stand up? That's OK, Buccaneers, you can just remain standing. Seeing as St. Louis and Tennessee won Sunday, Tampa Bay is the only team that still has a zero in its left-hand column. And the immediate future doesn't look too bright for the Bucs, who will return from their week off Sunday with first-round pick Josh Freeman making his first start at quarterback. Of Tampa Bay's next four opponents, only 3-4 Miami has a losing record, and the Dolphins -- who will play host to the Buccaneers on Nov. 15 -- have won three of their last four.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Donte' Stallworth broke his foot Saturday night in a 24-10 exhibition win against the visiting New York Giants and probably will be sidelined for two months. Stallworth probably was hurt during one of his three punt returns. He played limited time on offense and did not catch a pass. Ravens Coach John Harbaugh said Stallworth will have a screw put in his foot and that he hopes to have Stallworth back on the field around the time the team has its bye week Oct. 31. Joe Flacco passed for 229 yards and two touchdowns for the Ravens.
