    ✌Duces. Gone kick yo @$$ next season.

  2. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    Should have an “Understanding” button.
    I had to vote pleased because I am not confused or disappointed.

  3. K2 Says:

    It seems like the Bucs agree with Joe Bucsfan…Shepard’s not a top 3 receiver. The Panther’s told him he is…go to the team that believes in you (simple). Great opportunity for Shepard and I’m happy for him. If I were to choose between our DJax 1(b) or Shepard our 3rd…the bucs made the right call. I agree that Shepard’s a great special teams player, but it’s a positive that we can’t keep him because we are building too much quality on the team. Big step forward!

  4. Erik w/ Clean Athletics 'The Kwon Alexander of Bucs Fans' Says:

    I love Shep and I’m disappointed to lose him, but he really wants to continue to develop as a legitimate NFL receiver and I don’t think his potential role with the Bucs was very enticing with the amount of talented pass catchers we’ll have on our team by the time the season starts.

    I wish him well

  5. Capt. Blighe Says:

    5th WR at best. Easily replaceable.

  6. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    I like Shep…acknowledge his ST prowess and the fact that he did make some big catches for us.

    Serious question though because I can’t really remember…old age does that to you. 🙂

    Is it just me or did Shep also drop some catchable passes. Who has better hands….Shep or Hump? Shep or Brate? I do not remember Shep as horrible hands but he did seem to be a bit inconsistent…but again perhaps that’s just my bad memory.

  7. gotbbucs Says:

    Here’s the bottom line. There was an opening last year for any one of our backup recievers to make a name for themselves, and none of them did. Evans was seeing braket coverage and none of our other outside recievers could beat any other teams #2 corners. It says all that really needs to be said.

  8. Destinjohnny Says:

    Great team guy. Hurts to take away glue.
    It’s more then talent you have to weigh chemistry.

  9. SeattleBuc Says:

    I like Shep, and would have liked to keep him, but the resigning of ST Ace Josh R takes the edge off. I still think the Bucs will a draft a receiver. Throw in the addition of DJax, Possibly VJax and Murph returning form injury and it appears the Bucs felt suring up the Corner Depth was more of a priority, Im good with it. Hope Shep does well, just not against us.

  10. Rod Munch Says:

    A bit disappointed- but as someone else said I understand. I still think he has a chance to contribute at more than just special teams, I think he showed enough last year to justify that belief. Won’t surprise me at all if he gets 600-700 yards next year, or if he doesn’t catch a pass.

  11. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    What angers me and why I choose angry as my response has more to do with the fact that he went to a division rival who will be milking him for as much pertinent information as possible. Offensive, defensive, and player tendencies, tells and other info that only a player in the same locker room in the same system for the past 2 years would be able to spill on. Not good.

  12. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Respect the fact the Brotha got his money
    But unlike these college kids coming into the league – he had a choice.
    An he decided to side with enemy

    He’s dead 2 Me Now

  13. Cobraboy Says:

    So the Kitties lose Ginn and gain Shepherd.

    The Bucs lose Shepherd and gain DeSean Jackson.

    I am totally OK with that.

  14. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    You’re nothing to me

  15. DB55 Says:

    Angry, Confused and disappointed

    1. go to the team that believes in you (simple).
    Anger. Why don’t the Bucs believe in Shep? He’s a captain, he’s a ST ace and he avg 14.2 ypc 2Tds in limited play vs Hump’s 11.3ypc 2TDs.

    2. If I were to choose between our DJax 1(b) or Shepard our 3rd…the bucs made the right call.
    Confused. That’s what’s puzzling, they gave the same money to Josh Robinson.

    3. because we are building too much quality on the team.
    Disappointed. Louis Murphy does not a better team make. Huff certainly doesn’t inspire confidence and as much a I like Hump he had to miss a game last yr bc of concussion. Never know how that plays out long term.

    Carolina signed Shep and let go of their #3 and #4 WRs. And they paid him the same $$ we paid Josh Robinson who isn’t a captain, doesn’t make as many plays and didn’t play many, if any, def snaps.

    Isn’t Shep the guy who hypes-up the locker room? Now GMC can take over that duty.

  16. DB55 Says:


    YES forgot that part that should have been another para to my rant.

  17. SeattleBuc Says:

    Buc4Lyfe79 Nailed it. Shep is a former QB and has serious foot ball IQ. He had a huge game against Chip Kelly’s 49ers and was first to remind Chip that he had cut him when he was with Philly. He has a chip on his shoulder. He will feel dissed by the BUCs and spill the beans to our Division rival. Shep may be getting played by the panthers org.

  18. DallasBuc Says:

    Great role player and hate to lose him to Panties. We have a new age world class receiving core and great opportunity to improve special teams in all areas so I’m good with it provided our GM feels same way

  19. DB55 Says:

    Did Dallas just agree with Licht?

  20. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    So the cats allowed gin to walk and followed that by allowing the speedster Philly Brown to walk. I’m looking more and more forward to seeing them again next season.

  21. Mike Johnson Says:

    Can’t keep’em all guys. Money rules professional sports. You can throw Loyalty out with the bath water. Make your bank Mr.Shepard. Nobody but You will care 20 yrs from now when you’re sittin in some pain clinic gettin your meds from all of those football injuries. So get it while the gettin’s good. Panthers showed him the money and he took it. And..Good Luck to you Shep

  22. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    “Understand”..would have been a good option..

  23. ben Says:

    have the bucs done enough in free agency ?..lots of $ but only 1 big signing

  24. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I voted disappointed. He was a great special teams player and showed he could play decent at WR and made a couple of great TD catches in SF and against CHI, if I recall correctly. He’s a guy who worked hard to get to where he’s at and earned his payday. I will miss him and hope he does well, just not well enough to keep us out of the playoffs.

  25. USFBUC Says:

    Overall, I think the team has done a good job in FA. We re-signed Daryl Smith it sounds like from a video on the Bucs website so we are probably set at LB now.

    I wish we had more picks to fill some needs but I will just have to wait and see what the team does in the draft. Personally, I would love to see us make some moves to trade future picks to get the players we need this year.

  26. Gencoimports Says:

    Disappointed mainly because he’s a ST ace, and he showed flashes of being a good WR last year.

  27. TheDeuce Says:

    He’s a great team guy to lose but you can’t sign them all…I wish him well as he always gave his best as a BUC

  28. Pit Says:

    we need to add a center instead.

  29. Midnightstroker1 Says:

    Where is the choice on why is this even a post?? Seriously

  30. Bruce Says:

    It’s all good we re signed Josh Robinson who was top ten in special teams tackles. A rookie can fill in for russel Shepard he was expendable as far as the direction Tampa is going in. Trust licht and the process

  31. Bruce Says:

    Trust koetter

  32. Patrick1luv Says:

    @luvmybucs I’m with ya, he sided with the enemy. Understood and respected, but still don’t like it. Knowing is sometimes half the battle. And he knows the system. Stopping it is another story.

  33. gotbbucs Says:

    He had 2 tackles last year. Do you special teams ace guys realize that? Josh Robinson/Russel Shepard, Russel Shepard/Josh Robinson. Whats the difference? We signed one of them back and let the other one walk to a team that is obviously over-valuing him.
    Good teams do not cry over this type of spilled milk. It’s time Bucs fans start seeing what is potentially being built here and quit worrying so much about thsee kinds of transactions. The upside just wasn’t there.

    Everybody is worked up over a #5 reciever and right now this team doesn’t even have a starting caliber Center.

  34. NCFlorIdiot Says:

    Ok, DallasBuc just had the closest thing that I’ve not scrolled past on purpose that was even close to giving props to Licht!!! Only DB55 acknowledged it… Usually there’s a parade of DallasBuc hate when he’s so negative… I believe there should be a standing ovation in this here thread for DallasBuc’s discreet attempt to be positive! You go Dallas!

  35. Midnightstroker1 Says:

    The title of the post is called share your feelings…enough said

  36. Miko Says:

    Bottom line is shep fills a roster spot/need for the next 5 years and provides solid character. Can you say that about djax? NO
