Belichick Scores Bucs IntelligenceSeptember 12th, 2013
Bucs icon Ronde Barber recently said many teams across the NFL will sign released players of teams they’re going to face in a couple of weeks in order to gather valuable “intelligence” on an opponent.
Barber was speaking on Jay Mohr Sports, heard locally on WDAE-AM 620, andhe told tales of how the Bucs did that at times to gain an edge.
Well, it seems the Patriots, who after facing the Jets tonight will have a whopping 10 days to prepare for the Buccaneers, have just snatched up their own fresh knowledge of the New Schiano Order.
Rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones made the Bucs’ 53-man opening roster but was cut this week to make room from fullback Spencer Larsen. He’s now a proud member of the Patriots.
What sort of edge can Jones give Bill Belicheat and Tom Brady? Joe doesn’t know. But Joe’s confident Greg Schiano is squirming just a tiny bit wondering what Jones might reveal.
