Well, going into the card Bios and creating each drive as a single drive seems to have done the trick, FreeBSD now sees them.

My dmesg shows the 3ware card installed (twa0)and shows ZFS running.

I have not created an array on the card because I want to do RAIDZ3 so wouldn't the card just ask as pass through? If I go into the card when the system boots, I see all of my drives, but I only have option for RAID 5, 10, 50.

Do you have more thoughts?
