Lovie Signs A Dozen; Rodgers Sticks

January 6th, 2014

There is no Bucs general manager, but the business of NFL rosters must go on.

New Bucs commander Lovie Smith has signed off on the Bucs locking down 12 players to futures contracts, which typically go to NFL hopefuls and former practice squad players.

Here’s the list issued today by the Bucs:

CB Marc Anthony
T Emett Cleary
T Jace Daniels
DT Everett Dawkins
CB Bobby Felder
G Jason Foster
DT David Hunter
K Patrick Murray
QB Jordan Rodgers
LS Patrick Scales
P Jacob Schum
WR Tommy Streeter

Of note is QB Jordan Rodgers, Mike Glennon’s roommate and Aaron Rodgers’ brother, who was on the Bucs practice squad last season. Greg Schiano spoke highly of Rodgers late last year, and Smith has a personal relationship with Aaron Rodgers.

    I saw where Lovie talked to Aaron Rodgers regarding Jeff Tedford…but I didn’t know that qualified as a “personal relationship” or, is there something we don’t know about their relationsnip?

  2. BigMacAttack Says:

    Chuckles has a personal relationship with 32 head coaches and 1000 playas.

  3. Sunny Says:

    Yes they both go and love many many women

  4. Mr. Patrick Says:

    Couldn’t understand why Streeter wasn’t brought up to roster considering the Bucs were receiver challenged. Good call Greg

  5. Brandon Says:

    And Tedford has an even more personal relationship with Jordan’s brother.

    FSU getting worked so far tonight against that big boy SEC competition. Easy to impress against a weak-ass schedule like what FSU plays.

    In Bucs news, I hear Carl Nicks may retire because of that foot injury. Do we owe him money if he does?

  7. Trubucfan22 Says:

    Nicks wouldn’t retire without an injury compensation package. Since he was injured “on the job” i think the bucs will be paying him most of his contract even if he does retire. A least whatever was guaranteed.

  8. McBuc Says:

    That guy. You spoke too soon. FSU making a come back.

    I do not think the bucs pay out if he retires unless they dream in football related injury. I think he would get a settlement.

    What a game! Phenomenal Bowl Games this year and an amazing Natl Champ. Makes you wonder if the BCS is really flawed.

    You were right ‘That guy’ FSU just can’t hang with the mighty SEC. Now wipe that egg off your face.

    ‘that guy’ – looks like auburn turned out to be the little boy in this game. Now go get your shine box.

    Im an SEC fan, more specifically Georgia, and even I didn’t want Auburn to win that game. They are a talented team no doubt, but they did not deserve to be there. Their wins against UGA and Bama came because of luck. They choked on a huge lead in the the 4th to a Georgia offense riddled with injuries but won because a 4th and 18 BOUNCE landed in the lap of Ricardo Louis, who didn’t even make an effort to go up for the ball. Oh yeah and the refs missed a blatant holding call on that play (not trying to sound whiny but look it up for yourself). If that bounce goes in any other direction, Auburn wouldn’t have played in that game tonight.

    In the Alabama game Auburn put up one helluva fight, but had Nick Saban not conviently argued with the refs to put 1 more second on the clock, that game would’ve gone to OT and I cannot see Auburns defense stopping T.J Yeldon or McCarron or being able to keep pace with the Bama D. The FG return was not luck. That was Chris Davis siezing the opportunity to win the game for his team. However the FG attempt would never had happened if Saban didn’t say something. That is luck.

    Don’t get me wrong Auburn is a top 10 team, but just like Myron “Nine Lives” Lewis their luck was bound to run out. Had Auburn pulled a Music City Miracle on the final play I don’t think I would ever watch another Auburn game again. Including their rivalry game with Georgia lol. However the ACC does not compare to the SEC in my opinion. FSU is deserving of the National Title, but they are a diamond in the rough. Did you see the ACC Championship against FSU and Duke? They beat them worse than Johnny Boy did. No contest.

    Speaking of officiating, I have never seen so many blatant holding and pass interference calls that weren’t called in the GB-SF game. Michael Crabtree was mugged and roughed up beyond the 5 yard jam zone when the ball was in flight at least 3 times early in that game with no flags. The NFL has to get a consistent interpretation of what is and isn’t pass interference. Troy Aikman mentioned it a few times but hardly was telling it like it is. How as a color analyst can you not tell it like it is, the most horrible non calls I’ve seen all season.

    That Guy says: Eat your words ….FSU proved why they are number 1…So kiss it!

  16. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    @That guy

    Very appropriate moniker. I’ll be the better guy. Great game by Auburn. Glad we beat the best of the SEC. No one can ever take that from FSU. But, it took every bit of team heart to pull it out.

  17. Left_Coast_Bucs_Fan Says:

    @Ed Says: Re Speaking of officiating….Agree with you about the refs missing many holding calls, the good thing is that it went both ways. What was worse though was last nights Championship Game, the refs pretty much were fans watching the game and only called the blatantly obvious. Auburn was holding FSU DL on nearly every play, it’s no wonder Mason ran for so many yards. Congrats to FSU.
