“Welcome To The NFL, Clifton Smith”

December 2nd, 2009

No doubt this video below is circulating around the locker room at One Buc Place.

How could it not?

It represents the start of Clifton Smith’s career as a punt returner and the Bucs’ new punter’s 15 minutes of fame. Oh yeah, the Bucs signed punter Sam Paulescu yesterday to replace Dirk Johnson, whose disastrous fake punt Sunday ended with him stuck with a season-ending hamstring injury.

      Joe, any comment on Matt Bryant signing with the Falcons?

      Joe believes that it speaks for itself.

      Joe likes Bryant but he greased his own wheels for his exit when he mouthed off about Mike Nugent. He was right, but a general manager never likes being called out in public, especially for a guy who was hanging onto his job by a thread. It wasn’t Bryant’s smartest move and Joe believes Bryant is well aware of that now.
