Will Joseph Ever Play For The Bucs Again?August 27th, 2012
Davin Joseph’s contract presents an interesting reality: He might never play another snap for the Bucs.
Per Rotoworld.com, part of the NBC Sports family, Joseph’s seven-year, $52.5 million deal signed before the 2011 season only included two guaranteed contracts, $9.5 million for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. After that the Bucs could cut ties with Joseph, who turns 30 next season, without cash ramifications.
Joseph’s patellar tendon injury is serious. That’s what screwed up Cadillac Williams — twice — and other NFL players have struggled to even return from it. Can Joseph even get back to training camp in 10 months?
Joe’s a big Joseph fan, and his injury is a huge loss. But the Bucs are forced to move on for 2012. If the new guard is solid, Joe doubts Joseph will put his hand on the ground for the Bucs again.
