Mike Nugent Kicked Off The Bucs Roster

October 5th, 2009

mike nugent 2Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

Mike Nugent, the former horrendous Bucs kicked, was given the boot tonight by Raheem the Dream and Mark Dominik, so says Joe’s good friend, “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig.

Per Mike Florio, the curator, creator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, Nugent gets to keep his base salary of $2 million.

Must be real nice to suck at your job, keep it for, what, three months, and then get to sit on our ass for the next nine months collecting $2 million.

Though the Bucs have not replaced Nugent yet, immortals Brandon Coutu and Shane Andrus were at One Buc Palace today trying out for the opening.

Joe trusts Dominik won’t drop $2 million on either one.

There’s a reason why Raheem the Dream scoffed openly when he was asked about Nugent.

    Yet another poor, poor decision on the part of the Dream and his trusty sidekick Domino-nik…… so is Matt Bryant now laughing right along side Chucky?

    I wonder why the Bucs wouldn’t take a look at Graham Gano (assuming they didn’t)? He’s from Florida (Pensacola area), went to FSU, won the Groza Award as the top collegiate kicker last season, was in the Ravens camp in the preseason before being released … and now he’s going to play for the Las Vegas UFL team. Surely UFL contracts allow players to go to the NFL if they want?

    Or, you know, Matt Bryant has had 4 weeks to rest and recover from his injury. He may not kick it into the endzone, but he’s got proven reliability.

    Per Pewter Report they picked Andrus…

    seems like the bucs would have an inside line on all sorts of soccer-style kickers over in Europe, S. AMerica, etc.

    Lets all hope Shane Andrus wins us some games!!!!

  7. Jorge Says:

    Nick! Let’s all hope the kicker doesn’t HAVE to win ANY games! I just don’t want him to LOSE any games…
