The NFL has released their officiating crew roster for Super Bowl XLVIII this week, and it looks like one member of the Buffalo Bills family will be on the field at the Super Bowl after all.

Former Bills safety Steve Freeman will be the back judge for head referee Terry McAulay at New Meadowlands Stadium for the league's championship game. 

Freeman has been an NFL official for 13 seasons and has officiated eight NFL playoff games. In order for Freeman to referee the Super Bowl, he must have had five years of NFL experience, previous playoff experience and must be rated in the top tier in his position.

In his time with the Bills, Freeman played 12 seasons (1975-86) and appeared in 178 games. Freeman recorded 23 interceptions, three of them were returned for touchdowns. Freeman also recovered eight fumbles in his career, which ended in 1987 with the Minnesota Vikings
