The Clock Is Ticking For Matt Bryant

September 1st, 2009

It’s really no surprise to Joe that Matt Bryant may be out of a job. The guy’s been hurt and Mike Nugent, who the Bucs signed in the offseason to compete with Bryant, had done nothing to suggest he’s not worthy of the job.

If Bryant is not playing and his hurt, it’s easy to see him unemployed. The Mad Twitterer of the St. Petersburg Times, Rick Stroud, reports that Bryant has all but resigned himself to the fact that he will be cut and seems to be inclined to want to be cut.

But Bryant says he needs another week for the injured hamstring on his right kicking leg to completely heal.

Rather than jeopardize his career, Bryant said Monday that his release by the Bucs might be better than rushing back into a competition with free agent Mike Nugent.

The Mad Twitter also details how Raheem the Dream told Bryant that if he’s not practicing this week his days as the Bucs kicker are over. It’s hard to kick, much less kick well, when you have a bum kicking leg.

    Hey Matt – take the time off and heal – remember what happened to matin Gramatica? You’ll be called upon in 2010.

    GREAT!!! Let’s go with the guy who is 4 for 7 in the preseason who has NOT had anyone competing with him since the guy we already have is only an 83% accurate kicker! I wish Matt would kick Raheem the Bad Dream straight in the nuts–I hate that guy!!
