Number Of Players At One Buc Today? NoneApril 26th, 2011
Listening to Sirius NFL Radio today, co-hosts of “The Opening Drive,” Bob Papa and Solomon Wilcots, Joe heard reports of players showing up at several team facilities.
The Bucs, whose management has lauded the work ethic of its players, had a grand total of zero players show up this morning to work out. That’s the word from Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune who has staked out the Bucs headquarters.
The NFL lockout has been lifted but it doesn’t seem like it at One Buc Place.
No Tampa Bay Buccaneers players have reported to work there yet this morning, according to team spokesman Jonathan Grella, and we’re not sure if any will.
“I am not personally encouraging or discouraging players to show,” Bucs center and player representative Jeff Faine told the Tribune in a text message Tuesday morning.
Cummings added that Faine told him he had no intention of showing up this morning. Neither Cummings nor Faine elaborated.
For some odd reason, this bums Joe out. Joe thought sure that Josh Freeman and a few receivers were be at One Buc Palace at the crack of dawn.
Perhaps all the of the players are out of town?
