“He’s Going To Be Annoyed With Me”

Will constantly pester a teammate.

Bucs cornerback Vernon Hargreaves — he’s already fielded texts from America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, fellow Gators product Louis Murphy and Pro Bowler Gerald McCoy — has made no secret that the NFL cornerback he has tried to pattern his game after more than any other is Brett Grimes.

By a combination of chance, luck and, perhaps, fate, Hargreaves now finds the guy he looks up to as his new teammate. And Hargreaves made no secret he will wear out Grimes asking him questions all day long how to best play in the NFL.

“He’s going to be annoyed with me,” Hargreaves told Joe today at One Buc Palace.”I’m going to be in his pocket 24/7. I need to know everything he knows. I need to be just as good if not better than he is.”

Let Joe tell you, Hargreaves is some kind of fired up and motivated to hit the field.

He could not stop smiling talking about getting to work on the practice field. He actually got Joe fired up listening to him and feeling his passion. Let’s just say Hargreaves is no Myron Lewis.

Hargreaves was even geeked to choose Warrick Dunn’s old number.

“He did, he did make the Pro Bowl [as a rookie],” Hargreaves said of Dunn. “That’s the goal. Well, actually the goal is the Super Bowl, so I hope I don’t make the Pro Bowl.”

    I love the passion, hope it translates.

  3. Buc1987 Says:

    Being a local kid I’m sure he remembers what it was like when the Bucs turned the corner in the 90’s. I don’t know though what was he 4 or 5 years old.

    Let’s hope he contributes to another turn around like the 90’s.

    Will Miko give him permission? That’s my question.

  5. GhostofSchiano Says:

    I wonder if he will ask George Johnson what it feels like to be a “Sackless Johnson”?

    But that will all change this year………..

    This is exactly the fire that this team needs to keep adding on the defensive side of the ball. VH3 and Kwon will get along just fine!

  7. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Actually….87……he only spend his high school years in Tampa…..

    I think it would be a good idea for VH3 to get on Miko’s good side.

    Dang….Warrick made pro bowl as a rookie? I had forgotten. I always admire young athletes who respect the tradition of their sport and the history of their franchise.

    I suspect this kid gets it…and he’s only 20!!!

  9. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    Smart kid! Future great CB! I’m beyond happy..

    I have to mention…My son Alex got to wash and vacuum one of the Bucs’ car today…and he recognized my son from working at Chipotle before..Always sweet to my boy..and my boy loves this Buc..his name???

    Lavonte David!!!
