Dezmon Briscoe Promises To Return To BucsApril 18th, 2012
OK, this is just getting weird for Joe.
There have been all sorts of rumors claiming why Bucs wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe went AWOL on the Bucs this week, which doesn’t appear to have won him many favors with new law-and-order Bucs coach Greg Schiano.
The Bucs classified Briscoe’s absence, after the team investigated why he was not at One Buc Palace this week, as “personal issues.”
Well, if one has enough time to piece together all the Internet rumors, it’s a helluva lot more detailed than “personal issues.”
Apparently realizing that by his absence he jeopardized his tenure with the team (since the signing of Vincent Jackson, Briscoe is likely No. 5 on the depth chart), Briscoe took to Twitter tonight to try to explain himself to Bucs fans.
@DezBriscoe89: As far as me not being at camp. There are personal reasons. I love my teammates and I’ll be back at workouts Monday #bucnation … I could of handled the situation better. I’m still wrong and I wanna apologize to @Roycelr because she don’t deserve that. Love you … I’m done now. Looking forward to being with my teammates Monday. Everyone that knows me know I’ma team player till I die. No individuals
As to the details of Briscoe’s absense, from best Joe can tell Briscoe is in the middle of a sordid love triangle involving his baby mama, NBA player Dwight Howard’s baby mama, some NBA groupie, a reality show on VH1, and a quickie marriage.
At this point, Joe is just simply confused and hopes Briscoe makes it back to One Buc Palace ASAP rather than AWOL.
