Stud Bears running back Matt Forte is sitting out OTAs and is making a lot of noise to the new regime of the Bears about an extended contract.

Stud Bears running back Matt Forte is sitting out OTAs and is making a lot of noise to the new regime about an extended contract.

For those who always covet thy neighbor’s wife, the following is something to keep an eye out for, and it isn’t Rachel Watson.

New regimes often look to clean house and get their own men (think Lovie Smith’s purge of the offensive line last spring). Often, they won’t tolerate very long a player who is bucking the new regime. (more…)

Both Herm Edwards (above) and Adam Schefter stated emphatically this evening that barring something unforeseen, Jameis Winston will be drafted by the Bucs with the No. 1 overall pick.

Joe is telling you, the claim dropped by Yahoo! Sports’ Charles Robinson, that Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, member of Team Glazer and co-president of the Glazer Family Foundation, may put a halt to the Bucs drafting Jameis Winston has left those in the know with their heads spinning.

As one of Joe’s contacts told him tonight, “That may be an all-timer,” as far as wild rumors and the Bucs go. (more…)

It is still Jameis Winston to the Bucs, says Peter Schrager of FOX Sports.

It seems awfully curious that the two people — who Joe respects a great deal — fueling the recent Marcus-Mariota-to-Bucs talk have both stated publicly they believe the Bucs will still draft Jameis Winston. (more…)

Curious Quote From “Jaws”

Monday, April 13th, 2015
Ron Jaworski's recent comments about Marcus Mariota and the Bucs leave Joe scratching his head.

Ron “Jaws” Jaworski’s recent comments about Marcus Mariota and the Bucs leave Joe scratching his head.

Yes, the Silly Season added another chapter over the weekend when former NFL quarterback “Jaws,” Ron Jaworski, determined Marcus Mariota is his top QB in the draft, just like Mike Mayock of NFL Network did days before him.

Also like Mayock, who believes the Bucs will draft Jameis Winston despite his quarterback rankings, Jaws said these are his evaluations and, “I am not the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.(more…)

The suggestion that Team Glazer is split on drafting Jameis Winston because of community relations doesn’t add up

Among the three highlights of the Silly Season kickoff last week was a reported discord among Team Glazer regarding whether to draft Jameis Winston No. 1 overall.

Darcie Glazer Kassewitz, one of the five Team Glazer siblings in control of the Bucs, was reported to have misgivings about Winston because of his off-field history and how that would play with community relations. (more…)
