“I’ve Made A Ton Of Progress”

August 14th, 2011

Joe heard sweet music today from Cody Grimm out at One Buc Palace. A massive key to the Bucs defense, specifically the run defense, Grimm is feeling great.

“I’ve made a ton of progress,” Grimm said with a smile.  “I really needed to run on it [in training camp]. The ankle’s a lot looser. I feel great.”

The Bucs practiced in shorts today under the broiling sun and practice ended a bit early. There was also plenty of national media swirling around.

Dezmon Briscoe continues to be a big target with great hands. And Joe was thoroughly impressed by Ronde Barber running sprints after practice and staying on the field to tutor youngsters and relative no-names.

Check back with Joe tonight and tomorrow for more from today’s practice at One Buc Palace. Joe’s got a couple of great interviews with Micheal Spurlock and Jeremy Zuttah to share.

    Well its like having another linebacker out there playing safety in the run defense….mainly because thats exactly what Cody Grimm was in college! The safety play from the 1st string was great in general with Sean Jones staying around the ball and recovering a fumble too. Its nice to not even have to worry about Tanard coming back and staying clean since he really isn’t needed at this point.

    Great news about Grimm…. Now let’s see what McCoy and and the other DT’s got in plan for the Pat’s on Thursday.

    Just returned from One Buc. Took the family, got to meet players. Grimm was very humble and gracious. He was not dressed, but still in a temp splint.

    Benn looked great too.

    Friends, don’t worry if you cant afford season tickets. Get single game tix. You don’t want to miss this team. After the basic activity I saw today, we are probably starting a 5-6 year run at the Superbowl. These guys are good and the talent looks deep. Other teams will be gobbling up our cuts.

    I wanna see Clayborn sack Brady on Thursday. He was a great pick.

  8. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Pats already signing our cuts. They just inked Koutouvides today. More to follow after we get down to 53 I’m sure.

    And I totally agree about Clayborn. After re-watching the game he looked fantastic. His future is bright with the Bucs.

  9. BecklesHeartsRuud Says:

    Yes the pats did sign Koutovides. Its nice to know we are so deep at linebacker that special teams only backers now have zero shot at the roster.
