Frank Okam ReturnsNovember 23rd, 2011
Joe, among many others, was taken back when Frank Okam was cut the other day in favor of
Afa and Sika Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, the new signee from the Eagles practice squad.
There’s no question Okam was a fan favorite and a favorite of Joe’s. When you’re around 375 pounds and you can play, it’s hard to not be beloved. And in Joe’s mind Okam is better and more versatile than Roy Miller.
Okam was on the field last year balling at the 3-technique when the Bucs were playing well at the end of the season. And Okam had strong moments in his backup role this season.
Well, now Okam is back with the Bucs and on the practice squad, Joe has confirmed. And Okam is Twittering his excitement tonight. A man who hasn’t made a fortune yet playing football, Okam seems to appreciate that he’ll keep collecting a paycheck.
@98nightmare– Glad to be back. More fuel for the tank
Joe’s not sure whether Okam is referring to his gas tank or his food bill, but it doesn’t matter. Welcome back, Frank.
