One Of “The Wolfs” Surfaces In Carolina

May 16th, 2014

cody grimmJoe was reminded today of one of the lighter periods in Bucs history, when Raheem Morris often distracted fans from the losing with news conferences that rolled out silly nicknames, stories of his granny looking like a bulldog, historic ramblings “and things of that nature.”

One classic came before the implosion of 2011, when Raheem explained how his starting safeties, oft-injured Cody Grimm and serial loafer Sean Jones, were “The Wolfs.”

Grimm was healthy last spring but got in trouble for two alcohol-related shenanigans and was a final roster cut by the New Schiano Order.

Grimm was out of football in 2013, but he resurfaced today with word from the Panthers that Grimm will join their rookie minicamp as a tryout player.

Joe wishes Grimm well. He was a legitimate No. 3 safety when he wasn’t hurt.

And yes, three other key Bucs safeties of 2011 are all out of football: Tanard Jackson, Jones and Ahmad Black. (Hell, Lovie Smith couldn’t win with that bunch.) Reserves Corey Lynch and Larry Asante are still hanging around with Indianapolis.

For those unfamiliar, here’s the famous Wolf scene from Pulp Fiction: (Not safe for work.)

    Cody Grim was a ta king machine before he got injured his rookie season.

    Pretty please, with sugar on top!

  4. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I liked Cody in the beginning. Good kid. I hope he finds a place, just not on our team.

  5. JohnnyRed Says:

    I do believe Tanard Jackson just got reinstated and signed back with Washington to be with Raheem.

  6. Macabee Says:

    Another former Buc, DT Brian Price is a tryout at the Jags. Small world!

  7. VinceNY Says:

    Also, Okoye, the DT we signed briefly IIRC, is now a Cowboy.

  8. Macabee Says:

    Joe, small point, but just so you know, Tanard Jackson as we speak is still with the Redskins. He was reinstated by the NFL, then immediately cut by the Redskins for contract purposes on May 6th, then on May 7th re-signed at the veteran minimum.

    Your point is well taken though, I doubt that he makes it through camp!

  9. Bill Says:

    Tanard was just resigned by Washington. Larry Asante is out of the league.

  10. BoJim Says:

    I liked Grimm a lot. Thought he had a little bit of Lynch in him. Hope he gets back in the game.

  11. Bucfan#37 Says:

    I wanted Grimm to hang on with the Bucs too. I also liked Leonard’s effort. Blount with Pittsburgh now, they love him up there.

    The Kids got all the smarts, athletic ability and instincts to be a very good Safety at this level but he just doesn’t have the body to withstand the punishment on a NFL field.
