Lockout Chatter Has Bucs In Upbeat Mood

June 29th, 2011

The buzz among Buccaneers at the players-only minicamp yesterday was that the asinine lockout is nearing its final hours, so reported Tom Korun of local ABC Action News fame.

Korun chimed in on the TV station website that Josh Freeman is getting great signs from his agent and union man Jeff Faine is talking the talk.

Mood:  Rather upbeat. I do believe that the tone of the labor talks has a lot to do with their attitude. An agreement in principle can come any day now, at least that was the sentiment at IMG yesterday.

So much so, that Freeman told us that his agent (Tom Condon) is telling him that a resolution ” is very close, very close.”

Bucs player rep Jeff Faine told me yesterday morning ” that he expects the players will hear more in the next few days.” He is encouraged.

Freeman went on to say that he thought the only part that might be missing in preparing for the upcoming season would be ” possibly a few days of training camp.”

Who is Joe to urinate in the face of such optimism from two Bucs very plugged in? Fingers crossed.

    Yeah great work Joe! The mini-camp coverage has been spot on!

    I doubt that De Smith and Goodell would be chumming it up at IMG if a deal wasn’t close.
