What Is Donald Penn Getting At?

April 9th, 2013

Bucs stud left tackle Donald Penn is one of the coolest guys in the Bucs’ locker room. And recently he signed up for Twitter and has been a Twittering fool.

If you happen to be a Lakers fan in addition to a Bucs fan, Penn is a must follow.

This afternoon, Penn seemed to be teasing Bucs fans claiming there is some big news ahead.

@DPENN70: I just heard some good news Bucs fans y’all will find out soon and it has nothing 2do with Revis but will help our team out a lot #trustme

So if this isn’t Revis, what could it be?

Did Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik swing a trade for a corner other than Darrelle Revis?

Did Dominik sign a right tackle?

Did Dominik trade for a tight end?

Or, what may be more likely, has graybeard Bucs legend Ronde Barber made his decision to return to the Bucs?

The plot thickens.

“Keep calm.”

UPDATE: Donald Penn sent out another Twitter to clarify his previous statement and suggests the “good news” does not involve Ronde Barber.

DPENN70: Dang I didn’t know it would do this but here is a hint has nothing 2do with the GOAT Ronde Barber as far as I know he is still undecided

Could it be that Mike Williams signed an extension?

And no, “GOAT” does not mean Sabby the Goat, but is an acronym for “Greatest of All Time.”

    Andre smith at RT?

  2. What the Buc? Says:

    Guessing Ronde is coming back.

  3. JBsk Says:

    I hope it’s Ronde!

  4. Chris NJ Says:

    Eric Winston? It would make sense that Penn would know first

  5. Sunny Says:

    Lol love your pushing be calm joe

  7. James Buc Says:

    My guess is Ronde is coming back.

  8. bucfanjeff Says:

    I’m guessing Ronde.

  9. the_buc_realist Says:

    they must of fired the Pop-star?

  10. bucfanjeff Says:

    If it is Ronde, and no offense to him, but that news is…well…yawn.

  11. Max Says:

    Wright or Ronde coming back most likely

  12. Nickaswell Says:

    Raheem is coming back as equipment manager.

  13. Yar Says:


  14. DjoshFreeman Says:

    O the power of the athlete and social media.if its not revis then it’s not a cb.that leaves o-line, dt, or urlacher and we move foster outside…

  15. bucobruce Says:

    I hope it is something nobody sees coming ,ya I want ronda back but I want and hope splash move.Winston or something close would be great.We will start off great this year I just hope It sells tickets so I can watch the game because I can only afford 2 games year.Bucs 11-5 2013

  16. J 2.0 Says:

    Has to be Ronde coming back or a RT signing. Can’t imagine Dom would confer with Penn about any other position. And Penn might have found out from Ronde. Hope it is either one.

  17. stevek Says:

    I love me some Donald Penn. He came from undrafted and youngry, to fat and paid. My man, he is a great player and a helluva a dude.

    His transparency, lack of BS, and fighter mentality (fought Jared Allen, and then Allen got a beast sack on next play) are all reasons to love Penn.

    He is American as hell and I wish big #70 all the best, I think we got Clabo.

  18. J 2.0 Says:

    Honestly I love Ronde, have been watching him since I was a kid an dI do want him back. With that said, him coming back doesn’t make the team better, it keeps it the same. Hope it is something no one is guessing. Freeman extension, which I would be a huge fan of, would be the ultimate laugh out loud moment for me reading all of the anti-Freeman posters out there.

  19. stevek Says:

    Penn and the players know just as much as the GMs out there. They don’t call the shots, but don’t be naive the players and agents talk. That is how business gets done.

  20. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Blount extension.

    Maybe Freeman.

  21. Brian D. Says:

    Hope it’s Ronde coming back but I have a hunch that Mike Williams has agreed to a new contract.

  22. Oldguy Says:

    What are ya sayin? The Penn is mightier than the board?

  23. Brian D. Says:

    @ J 2.0 –

    Ronde coming back doesn’t make the team better? Please tell us about this other guy on the roster who will be a better nickelback in 2013…

    Goldson+Ronde as Free Safety and Nickelback is better than Goldson at FS and Leonard Johnson or Danny Gorrer playing nickel.

    Btw, we played with a nickelback in over 70% of our snaps last season, still very much an impact position.

    Keep dreaming… If Dom is that stupid, i have no doubt he will botch this whole Revis mess and we are doomed for the next 5 years.

  25. MR.T Says:

    I doubt it’s about Ronde. His coming back would be just maintaining the status quo, must be something else.

  26. JBsk Says:

    @j2. Can not be extension of Freeman as they have said they will not consider that until after 2013 season.

    On 2nd thought, someone mentioned Penn being a fighter, who was it that sat in Price’s chair and got a knot put on his head?

  27. Buc Wilder Says:

    Did we just sign another kicker!!!

  28. J 2.0 Says:


    I just know I am going to get my hopes up and it won’t be that big of a deal.


  29. DjoshFreeman Says:

    Mark barron

  30. J 2.0 Says:

    Just got the info. One Buc Place hired a new chef that isn’t as health conscious as the previous one.

  31. Buc Wilder Says:

    @ Djosh- ???

    Dick Butkus

  32. Snook Says:

    Everyone needs to get over the fact that Revis isn’t coming. I seriously doubt he wants to play in Tampa and the Jets aren’t going to deal him unless they get the farm for him.

    Time to move on, folks.

  33. knucknbuc Says:

    Myron Lewis has been resigned to a multi year deal?

  34. Drew Says:

    The Termites are back? Or maybe it’s the Palmetto bugs? I want to know!

  35. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    Bucs will return to creamsicle unis permanently??

  36. Mike J Says:

    stevek , Penn had the ability to possibly approach greatness but his gluttony has deflected his career.

  37. J 2.0 Says:

    Also Tweeted “Its not Barber”

    Am hearing the same rumors as everyone else, I would like to read some truths on this. He’s 8 days late on April Fool’s.

  38. mike Says:

    Its mike william extention! thats good news, but i dont know that its great news

  39. Nickaswell Says:

    I am in agreement Rhonde coming back is not improvement, Freeman extension will not be an improvement either. I tend to believe Penn is aware of a player coming here. Winston would be awesome.

  40. Adam Says:

    They fired Dominik.

  41. Northend Says:

    Hell must be getting ready to freeze…I actually agree with @stevenk about Penn being a real straight up guy.Damnit

  42. canadianbuc Says:

    Its not Ronde per his twitter acount

  43. J 2.0 Says:

    If it the Mike Williams extension I don’t think I’ll pee my pants over it. Also, doesn’t make the team better, keeps it the same. Plus he really wussed it up in that Rams game last year.

  44. Buc Wilder Says:

    Vinny’s comin back, and he’s bringing Tebow with him

  45. bucfanjeff Says:

    Williams extension doesn’t “help” the team, per se.

  46. Buc Wilder Says:

    indoor practice facilities

  47. James Buc Says:

    I’m Cool Hand Luke level-headed and Donald Penn has me guessing.

  48. canadabuc Says:

    They have finally found a way to eliminate lovebugs. Damn lovebugs !

  49. mark2001 Says:

    I have to think it is Vet. RT.

  50. JJ1977 Says:

    Elvis, just signed a five-year contract…..

  51. J 2.0 Says:

    As per Rick Stroud: Eric Wright restructure’s deal to remain in Tampa.


  52. SilenceTheCritics Says:

    Just read Wright restructured his contract on twitter.

  53. rrsrq Says:

    Schiano allowing rap music in the locker room

  54. canadianbuc Says:

    Wright restructures his contract now we have him on a one year deal

  55. SeanyMac in SC Says:

    Finally a non-Revis related article! I think D Penn has hooked himself some starving news Bucs fans. Probably laughing at all the reaction his Twitter is getting.

    I know the news is slow right now, but all this “he said, she said” drama over Revis has gotten quite old. I won’t stop reading the blogs, but I really crave some “substantial” news about a trade.

  56. bucobruce Says:

    When are we going to find out, wow do we love football this little thing is just so big.Damn I love the Bucs,the offseason is so bitter sweet.

  57. bucobruce Says:

    T.O. is coming to tampa,thats my Quaterback.

  58. Buc Wilder Says:

    If you are reading this- I guess you haven’t heard that we signed another kicker

  59. BOb Says:

    Its about the indoor/ bubble practice facility…..guaranteed! Im thinking he just didnt know that news was already out there. Think about it, who in this world would be happier to find out this news? Nobody!

  60. Mike M Says:

    It’s just not “WRIGHT.”

  61. Paul Says:

    He looks like a little kid in that pic with Shaq on his twitter lol.
