February 17th, 2013

This video really warmed Joe’s heart. Bucs fans can take great pride in undrafted cornerback Leonard Johnson. The pride of Largo High has been busy this offseason. Alex Halsted, of Iowa State News, tells the story.

Congratulations, Leonard.

    For anyone who wasn’t yet sure what to look for: that is a Bucaneer Man. Way to go Leonard, you represent your family and the Bucs well.

    Talib & Wright can kiss it…..this is the kind of corner we want. Maybe not the talent but over the long run…..more productive better for the community & better in the locker room.

    What he lacks in blazing speed and talent, he makes up for in desire.
    Congrats Leonard, for finishing!

    Now that was a cool offseason post.

    Good job not finishing in the first place to be undrafted

  13. You go Joe Says:

    Nice post, I hope this kid will develop into something great.

    Also a two year contract till 2014??? Or did i interpreted it wrong???

    He definately needs work at CB but he was one of the more promising looking young ones. I see a Free Agent starter another CB drafted and Johnson and Biggers fighting for the nickl guy

    Hometown boy did good. Finishing his education was an intelligent decision and one that I’m sure did not go un-noticed by the staff. Perseverance is a quality that does not go un-noticed and is a building block for future leaders. How easy would it have been to not finish college when you’re already in the NFL. Happens all the time, although some guys finish after their playing careers. “Buccaneer man”

    Good for him. He had a few exciting plays for us this year. Depending on what the team does during the offseason he may need to use it. They never did mention what the degree was in. Seems to be a fine young man. Kudos to his family for a good job raising this guy.

    Buccaneer man.

    I think Leonard is going to get every opportunity in OTAs & camp to show he can be a starter.

    Quit making crap up. I follow both of them on Twitter. They are actually buddies and seem to be always giving each other a hard time out of jest. Kind of like a big brother little brother relationship. I know Wright is not well liked but don’t get carried away.
