Josh Freeman not rattled by Jets' talk

By Pat Yasinskas

TAMPA, Fla. – Earlier on Thursday we told you about Muhammad Wilkerson saying he believes the New York Jets can rattle Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman.

If you’re looking for a war of words, that’s not happening. Freeman, who generally does his best to stay away from controversy, stayed true to his character when asked about Wilkerson’s comments Thursday afternoon.

"I'm no more motivated by the Jets saying something than someone in the media saying something," Freeman said. "[Motivation] comes from within. You have to hold it tight because you can’t let someone else saying something change the way you go about your business. Otherwise you are going to change and you are going to be off base."
