INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – If the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ever decide to negotiate a new contract for quarterback Josh Freeman they’ll be dealing with a different group of representatives than before.

Freeman, whose original five-year contract expires after the 2013 season, has changed agents, according to the official NFL Players Association agent registry.

Freeman is now officially represented by his father Ron, according to the registry, though Ron is working in conjunction with Jeff Nalley of Select Sports Group.

The change is at least partially a result of Freeman’s former agent, Ken Kremer, retiring from the player agent business and embarking on a financial services business.

Now word yet on whether Freeman’s new group of representatives have met or have scheduled a meeting with the Bucs to discuss Freeman’s future, which appeared rather cloudy until just a few days ago.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano said at the end of the season that he needed to evaluate Freeman’s 2012 performance before saying whether he intended to keep him around for the long term.

After completing his review, however, Schiano came out last Thursday with a strong endorsement of Freeman, saying is “our quarterback,’’ and that he believes he can help the Bucs achieve their goal of winning a Super Bowl.
