"Freeman saw action last year at both free and strong safety. He started the first two games of the season at free safety and played in all 14 games.
Steve had two pass interceptions including one against Miami in Buffalo that he returned 22 yards for a touchdown in the opening minutes of play; his other interception was against New England. He also had a fumble recovery in the first win over the Jets. A hard hitter with good football instincts, Steve came to the Bills in the preseason after being waived by the Patriots.
Freeman was a three-year starter at Mississippi State, led the team in interceptions his final two years and is a co-holder of the interception record with 10 in his final two years. He also served as a punt return man with 12 returns for 101 yards as a senior. Steve played in the North-South and Senior Bowl games and was also a track letterman.
Steve's college major was agriculture economics. He's active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes."
