Raheem’s Free-Agency TextAugust 29th, 2012
The man at the helm during the Bucs’ heinous, historic 10-game losing streak last season, Raheem Morris, said today he put fingers to keypad when the Bucs exploded in free agency and grabbed Vincent Jackson, Carl Nicks and Eric Wright soon after the bell rang on spending season in March.
Raheem joined WDAE-AM 620 this morning to explain that while he’s focused on his new job and moving forward with his career, he couldn’t help but needle rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, a man Raheem called “one of my friends forever.”
“I sent him a nice text that I won’t be able to say over the phone,” Raheem said.
The Bucs had among the lowest payrolls in the NFL when Raheem was head coach.
“I gave [Dominik] some nice choice words,” Morris told the Tampa Bay Times in a story published today.”But he was great about it. He laughed. He said he knew he was going to get this phone message.”
Raheem went on today to talk about how he scoffs at comments from those who say he ran an undisciplined program.
Joe will bring more from the interview later.
