Freeman's route to the NFL was highly unusual.  He went to Mary Hardin-Baylor for college, a Division III school in Texas.  He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tennessee Titans but was released before the regular season.  He has spent the last three seasons in Canada with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  He was the CFL's leading tackler last year.
