TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman is excited about the new offense the Buccaneers are installing and confident the team has the talent to run it effectively.

The fourth-year pro welcomes the addition of first-round draft pick Doug Martin and All-Pro guard Carl Nicks to the running game. And, he appreciates what receiver Vincent Jackson and tight end Dallas Clark could mean to a passing attack that sputtered during last season's 4-12 finish.

Freeman also feels good about the progress he's made working with the men first-year coach Greg Schiano hired to help the 24-year-old realize his potential — offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan and quarterbacks coach Ron Turner.
