No Go For Antonio Bryant And Stylez White

November 14th, 2009

Fresh off the Buccaneers official Twitter account, Antonio Bryant (knee swelling) and Stylez G. White (shoulder) did not make the trip to Miami.

Joe’s bummed out. These are two of Joe’s favorite Bucs. Joe’s had his share of private chats with each one. Both good, fun guys.

White’s a huge loss, given the recent success of the D-line and White personally (three sacks in the past three games).

If nothing else, this opens up another huge opportunity for Maurice Stovall to make a statement about his future in Tampa.

Joo has heard some speculate about whether Bryant is really motivated to help the Bucs and not just out for himself. Joe believes Bryant is simply hurt. It does him no good personally to be on the sidelines, and despite his bonehead comments at times, he seems like a team-first guy.

Also, Bryant is a Miami kid. Joe can only imagine he was dying to play back in his hometown.

After some digging, Joe found that Bryant last played a game in Miami with Cleveland in 2004. He had two catches that day from Browns rookie starter Luke McCown.
