Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik told the St. Petersburg Times that he wants rookie QB Josh Freeman eased into the starting role. Recently, coach Raheem Morris and quarterbacks coach Greg Olson have indicated that Freeman will be competing for the starting job in training camp.

    “The ultimate goal is to let Josh Freeman sit back and learn,” Dominik said Saturday.

    “I still think he’s a 21-year-old quarterback who came out as a true junior,” Dominik said of Freeman. “You’d like for him to grow and mature into his role and not be forced into it.”

Dominik also addressed the Plaxico Burress situation. The Buccaneers have been one of the teams linked to the enigmatic receiver, but Dominik said that the team was confident with receivers already on the roster.
