Sources for the NFL have reported to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that the Bucs players have held a PLAYERS ONLY meeting.
The full agenda of the meeting is unknown, but according to a source close to the NFL... it included concerns regarding the legitimacy of the vote that resulted in Quarterback Josh Freeman losing the Captain's "C" from his jersey.
Bucs had no comment.
So what happened? Obviously we dont know...but what are some possibilities?
1) Could BIG DOG Steve Duemig be correct about Head Coach Greg Sciano and his Micro Managing ways? Did Sciano conspire to remove the Captaincy from Freeman as a precurser to benching him at some point this season?
2) Did players get together and start pointing fingers..."I voted for him" "yeah, I voted for him too..." while they didnt but didnt want to come across as someone who didnt. This doesnt sound likely, but it is possible.
Either way.... a Players only meeting in week one is NOT a good thing.
