NFL notebook: QB Freeman could choose team by Monday
• Quarterback Josh Freeman signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Vikings on Sunday night, according to ESPN and other media outlets. Freeman had been contacted by 8 to 10 teams since his release from the Buccaneers on Thursday, according to CBSsports.com. In 60 career games, Freeman has thrown for 13,534 yards, 80 touchdowns and 66 interceptions. It's unclear how he fits with Matt Cassel and Christian Ponder already on the Vikings' roster. Freeman was a first-round pick in 2009 and is the Bucs' career leader in touchdown passes.
• The 49ers were interested in free agent defensive lineman Richard Seymour, multiple media outlets reported. Seymour and the 49ers could not agree to terms in September, according to CBSSports.com. The Lions and Falcons are also reportedly interested in the 34-year-old.
• The Raiders plan to work out free-agent quarterback David Carr on Monday, according to NFL.com. Starter Terrelle Pryor (Jeannette) was expected to play Sunday night against the Chargers after missing last week's game with a concussion. Undrafted rookie Matt McGloin was moved up to the backup spot, and Matt Flynn was dropped to third on the depth chart.
• The Titans contacted former No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell after starting quarterback Jake Locker was injured, ESPN reported. Russell was reportedly interested in joining the team but can't because of a knee injury he sustained during the summer.
• Jaguars rookie offensive tackle Luke Joeckel will miss the rest of the season because of a broken right ankle. Joeckel was injured in the first quarter of a 34-20 loss to the Rams.
