The Buccaneers announced yesterday that they have let go of rookie Jordan Jefferson, former quarterback of LSU, after only four days with the team. They had added him to their 90-man offseason roster on Sunday.

The quarterback's college career ended with a loss to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game in 2012. As a starter, Jefferson's record was 24 wins and 8 losses.

  • any reporting on why they waived JJ after four days?
  • I thought he was a lousy pickup to begin with. I think the coaches probably came to the same conclusion. New Buc coach better watch out because he's gaining a reputation for bringing in strays.
  • Oh, by the way, if they brought him in on Sunday and he was let go on Saturday, then how is that four days? My math has it six days, unless the announcement was two days after he was let go.

USFL plans a March 2013 return

Football fans, rejoice! No longer will we have to endure the painful months from the conclusion of the Super Bowl until the opening of training camps. Spring and Summer football is back, the USFL is returning. I loved the USFL in it’s day, perhaps that’s because the Tampa Bay Bandits were significantly better than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the time and they were easier to watch...
