Barrett Ruud Was Going To Blow Off Camp

August 3rd, 2010

barrett ruud 0802There’s been a few things pretty clear thus far in the early days of the Bucs training camp 2010:

* Brian Price is better than advertised.

* Mike Williams looks to be a budding go-to guy for Josh Freeman.

* Barrett Ruud is steamed.

The Bucs middle linebacker has been disgruntled for some time as he has wanted his payday, which has yet to come. When he was told, in so many words, by Bucs management that it wasn’t coming, he damned near walked out.

That’s the word from the Twitter feed of Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times.

Ive learned Barrett Ruud came close to leaving Bucs camp after being told there wont be a contract extension. Only his character stopped him.

Well, Ruud’s character better stop him from his kvetching. Joe will have something a bit later where it seems the Barrett Ruud soap opera may be wearing on his teammates.

As Joe has stated previously, Joe hopes Ruud takes his rage to the field and proves to the Bucs if not the NFL that he’s a stud linebacker.

    Thanks for the early morning laugh, Joe…….what a friggin’ joke

    Who does this guy think he is? Barrett, you ain’t that great….get over yourself. This reminds me of when Ronde became a FA….McKay told him “fine, go find a better deal…..” He couldn’t, and he came crawling back.

    @Joe “kvetching” You win again.

    Mauha, I believe that is the third time I’ve seen Joe use that word in the last few weeks, he must have come across some “word of the day” toilet paper or something! 🙂

    Its always nice to hear about a player contemplating about leaving.

    Sick it up Ruud. You’ll get your money soon enough.


    Hey Ruud, you should have ate your Wheaties growing up and been a left tackle.
