Doug Williams Changes ColorsApril 22nd, 2011
This isn’t a Bucs story, but it sure feels like one.
Buccaneers quarterback icon and former Tampa Bay personnel executive Doug Williams, now head coach at Grambling State University, will be in New York next weekend to step to the NFL Draft podium and announce the Washington Redskins’ second round draft pick, so reports the Washington Post. The NFL is having big-name team alumni call the second round picks. John Lynch will handle the Bucs’ honors, first reported by JoeBucsFan.com.
Now Williams is a storied Redskins player, as well, leading them to a Super Bowl win in the 1980s. But Williams still feels like Tampa Bay’s beloved guy, even if he had a sour exit from the organization last year.
Joe hates that Williams seems to be on crappy terms with the Bucs. And it feels dirty that Bruce Allen invited Williams to bond with the Skins next week.
Joe wouldn’t mind one bit if Williams is the 2011 pick for the Buccaneers Ring of Honor. Frankly, the guys who already were inducted into the team’s Krewe of Honor demolished with the old Tampa Stadium — Ricky Bell, Doug Williams, John McKay and Lee Roy Selmon — should get in ASAP.
