Found May 03, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
The hot topic of conversation since the Revis trade has come from the draft — when the Bucs selected North Carolina State quarterback Mike Glennon. Quarterback Josh Freeman has already displayed class after the selection by picking up the phone and calling Glennon, welcoming him to the team. So how will the Bucs feel if Freeman can’t handle the distraction of having Glennon on the sidelines?  Disappointed. Mark Dominik was on with 98.7 The Fan’s Justin Pawlowski and talked about how he hopes to see the starting quarterback handle the new kid on the sidelines. Josh is going into his fifth year. He’s played a lot of football and that’s not the way I look at it. I’m not concerned. And quite frankly, if he can’t handle it, that’s disappointing. You know, he’s a professional. And every position there’s a lot of competition. Coach (Schiano) has talked about that at the end of the season, how we’re going to try to increase the competition across the board at every position. Every player on this team knows that. And so I’m not concerned about that. Freeman had his best year last season under a new offense and some new weapons since being drafted in 2009. It would be naive to think the Buccaneers are not expecting better performances out of the 25 year old in 2013. Bringing in a (rookie) quarterback and naming him the backup could rattle Freeman. My guess is he will be just fine. For the entire interview between Mark Dominik and Justin Pawlowski, click here. (This article also appears on TheBayCave.com.

Bucs wasted a pick on Mike Glennon

I’m going to start right off the bat that I’m not a Mike Glennon fan, and all of these Josh Freeman is put on notice or Josh Freeman trade destinations are putting too much credit to Glennon’s name. Freeman is not my favorite quarterback either, but to use Glennon as a challenger to Freeman is laughable at best. Glennon is one of those players that got overvalued in the draft...

Mark Barron changes his number to 23, Darrelle Revis gets 24

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that second year safety Mark Barron has changed his number to 23 so Darrelle Revis can have 24. I’m sure Revis and his reps gave Barron a good reason (money) for him to change his number, since Revis’ brand includes his number.   Need NFL Tickets?
