“I Will Play For Free!”

October 29th, 2009

The brutal Bucs are so putrid, one wonders if some guy off the street could make the team.

Jason Krupinski seems to think so. The Hudson resident has been hanging outside of One Buc Palace holding a cardboard sign with the message, “I WILL PLAY For FREE!

While the salary offer may entice Bryan and Joel, NFLPA rules frown on such a practice.

Krupinski isn’t just an ordinary slug, writes Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. He played fullback for the Austin Wranglers of the Arena Football League and played college ball at Middle Tennessee State.

“I’ve played a little tight end, too, and I’ve played outside linebacker,” Krupinski said. “I don’t see them doing worse with me or without me. I don’t think I can do them any harm.”

No word yet on whether the Bucs will take a look at Krupinski. His chances seem slim, though, seeing as they just signed Chris Pressley away form the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad.

What’s the harm of hiring the guy for the practice squad? Or at least give him a tryout? It would be a great public relation’s move by the Bucs. Then again, public relations isn’t a priority for Bryan and Joel.

    How bout fire Raheem and have the fans call the plays online. They can market it as the fans are the head coach of the Bucs. Fans can post their plays online in realtime and the team executes the best play chosen. Can’t do any worse and might actually be a step up in coaching. Plus the Glazers can save money by turning off the lights in Raheem’s office.

    Okay, I’m 43, and I’m only 5’6″ and 165 pounds, but I can still run pretty fast and I think I can still catch a football. I couldn’t be worse than Clayton, and I’ll play if they just cover my bills and slip me an axtra c-note once a week.
