Gorrer Enjoying Full Offseason, Pick Of Freeman

July 25th, 2013

Late in today’s opening practice at One Buc Palace, cornerback Danny Gorrer snatched a Josh Freeman somewhat-lazy-looking pass out of the air. Interception!

Gorrer is a guy the New Schiano Order has  high hopes for. And while he’s no superstar and cost the Bucs a win against the Eagles last year, Gorrer feels he’s on the rise. It’s easy to forget Gorrer joined the Bucs in midseason and was still learning the defense, a tough order for a young player.

“By getting here Week 8, I kind of didn’t know the system and the scheme and whatever, and I was thrown into the fire to do what I do,”  Gorrer said. “Finishing strong with [Leonard Johnson] like I think we did, and showing coaches they can depend on us. It’s time to step up, from the first day of camp.”

Joe’s not here to pretend Gorrer is a Pro Bowler, but Greg Schiano is a secondary coach at heart. That’s his background, and the Bucs have scouted Gorrer and believe he can be productive. He just turned 27 and has managed to survive to his fifth season, including two in Baltimore.

Another player to watch in the hopefully improved Bucs secondary.

  5. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    I wonder who Danny was defending. X,Y,Z?

  6. Gus Says:

    I’m concerned more with the lazy pass from free lol

  7. You Go Joe Says:

    Danny was defending the Os, they are meant for offense.

  8. Nick2 Says:

    Was that Freeman pick thrown in the first hour of practice??? Wow going to be a long year…………

  9. Lev Says:

    I like Gorrer as a solid back up

  10. Macabee Says:

    OK, everybody relax! I was there! Tipped ball off the hands of WR David Douglas. Larsen was at LG and Cody Wallace at RG. Nuff said! Good for Gorrer though, right place at the right time.

  11. robert Says:

    ok that explains it… free has to get on the same page with douglas

    and it was the O line @ fault as well guys! sheez.

    Like how Joe forgot mention the INT was off a WR’s hands. Silly blogger tryin to stoke the fire on Day 1. Thanks for the laugh.

    Sooo, what’s your point. Joe didn’t say it was a superstar, All-Pro play by Gorrer. This post is not about Josh Freeman. Joe watched the pass go like everyone else there.

    So Joe should have also added how the pass was overthrown, therefore off the outstretched hands of the receiver?–Joe

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    It’s just PRACTICE! I suppose this is going to go on all season long though right robert. Each and every slip up by Freeman will judged even if the Bucs win the game. It will be well Freeman did this wrong or Freeman did that wrong. He could have been better. We need to put Glennon in already. Oh the silliness will continue even if the Bucs make the playoffs.

  14. Macabee Says:

    Freeman and the WRs, particularly Mike Will put on a fireworks show today. The crowd loved it! Even Glennon had a good day – one seriously overthrown pass to Michael Smith, but otherwise OK!

  15. Walter Says:

    Lol a tipped pass for an INT is Free’s fault?? Sounds like Douglas should’ve caught it. Who cares anyways, it’s a pick in training camp.

  16. tmaxcon Says:

    before all the calls for Glennon anyone watching the live feeds from NFL network this morning would have noticed a couple of Brutal throws by Glennon too.. One overthrow was ridiculous. Not defending Freeman but Glennon is not the answer.

  17. Buc'n Junkie Says:


    It seems our young corners are beginning to have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Remember Leonard on the “He threw it right at me” interception?

    You said you were there? What scheme were they practicing mostly? zone or man to man?

  18. Macabee Says:

    Let me be clear. My post is not in dispute with anything that Joe said. To be honest, it was a pretty dull practice until the 11-on-11s and that really didn’t last that long. The pads go on for the Sat nite practice. Maybe that will be better!

  19. Macabee Says:

    Buc N junkie,

    Mostly man, but I wouldn’t read anything into this practice. Seemed almost staged. A lot of media there – Sapp and NFL Network, et al. I enjoyed it, but didn’t learn anything relative to scheme, position battles, etc. Revis didn’t even participate except for walk-thrus! And also get other opinions, I couldn’t see everything either!

  20. Nick2 Says:

    You know I like Freemans potential and love his armstrength but Shawn King a Freeman supporter just came out and said he looks extremely rusty. Wouldn’t you think after all thats been said this offseason Free would want to come out fairlly sharp and have a good day of opening practice?

  21. BucDan Says:

    Thanks for the insight to Joe and Macabee. I tried to catch a few glimpses watching the DVR feed while on my lunch break. Couldn’t see much :/

    I’m hoping for some good looks in person next week though! I will be out there on Thursday and Friday. I will also try and attend the night practice as I had a great time last year.

    GO BUCS!
