Davin Joseph Just Wants To Have FunJune 20th, 2014
It seems the fallout from the era of former Bucs commander Greg Schiano continues. This time, it is coming from roasting St. Louis.
The Rams are completing their final practices before the team’s summer siesta this week and Rams coach Jeff Fisher was queried about his new guard Davin Joseph, formerly captain of the Bucs.
Joseph, drafted by Tampa Bay 23rd overall in 2006, suffered an ugly knee injury in the 2012 preseason and never really covered. He was cut by the Bucs in March.
Fisher claimed he had been after Joseph since he was released and clearly stated Joseph, currently, was added to the Rams roster for depth. But it is what he said about Joseph’s goals that invokes Schiano, at least is does to Joe, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“We had Davin in, in the middle of free agency, actually the beginning of free agency,” Fisher said. “We really liked the visit, was really excited about what we thought he could do for us from a depth standpoint and all that stuff. We gave him an opportunity to come in and compete, but Davin, I think, is at a point now where you know he just wants to have fun. We hit it off well, so we decided to wait until after the draft and we got things put together.”
So, Joseph just wants to have fun? He just wants to have fun playing football? So that means he grew weary of the toes-on-the-line mentality of Schiano and didn’t want to put himself in yet another Marine boot camp football program?
Or does this mean Fisher is undisciplined? Joe is going to guess this was a swipe at Schiano.
