Seems they're thinking about potentially activating him too. Must be nice to be picked up by a playoff team... although I wonder why a rule isn't in place to prevent non-playoff teams from releasing players while the playoffs are going on.

The Giants specifically released him with an injury designation to give him an opportunity to get picked up by one of these playoff teams. He wasn't in their future plans, so they did good by him.

Good pickup by the Bills. He's still got some left in the tank.

It feels a bit like collusion...?

Is Jared Veldheer to the Packers also collusion?

These are both very unusual circumstances

Freeman was cut last week, bills lost their #2 rb on Saturday. It worked out for him but it doesn't necessarily mean he would have been picked up by another playoff team had injury didnt happen. Same with the OT in Veldheer.
