Vernon Hargreaves On The Buccaneers Radio Network In 210 Words

September 10th, 2019

The Buccaneers Radio Network hosted fourth-year cornerback Vernon Hargreaves for a chat following Sunday’s loss to the 49ers.

Joe’s got your fast summary of Hargreaves’ interview below:

*Sunday’s Hargreaves interception, the second of his career, “was a good confidence boots after not playing all last year,” he said.

*He didn’t really know what to expect after not playing for a year and felt nervous through the first quarter. After that, he got into a rhythm.

*Diet is a major focus for Hargreaves, “I didn’t really take that too serious, you know, when I first got into the league … but that changed very quickly.”

*Hargreaves looks at his rough second season as a hard time that led to great personal growth, along with his injury last year. He said he learned a lot about football on the sidelines last season.

*Hargreaves reflected on the great mentoring that he had as a rookie from veterans during the 2016 season, and he even thought as a rookie that he’d never know as much football as those guys. Hargreaves says he’s embraced his 2019 role, answering all the questions that the rookies don’t want to ask coaches.

*Devin White has “picked up the [defense] like he’s been doing it for years.” Hargreaves said he is impressed how White talks to a 10-year veteran like Ndamukong Suh and is in complete command and confident.

*Soreness is the major enemy on a short week, Hargreaves said.

    Sounds like he quickly realized getting by on college talent won’t be enough at this level. Glad he got the message.

    I really like how hard he prepares before games. He is out there before most players doing stretches, drills, and exercise routines to keep muscles lumbered to help prevent injury. I see him every home game, because he does these in the corner of the end zone near my seat.

    He appears focused. I am sure he doesn’t want to be on the sidelines anymore, which is why he is stretching in ways I never see any other Buc doing. I just hope he rubs off on the rookies!

    I was really pleased to listen to how articulate and intelligent he is. It really came across. I guess I didn’t expect that due to being programmed by the photo JBF insists presenting of him within every post he’s featured.

    Maybe he deserves a photo-upgrade? Or do you want to forever relegate him to looking like a doofess?

    VHIII producing is a best case scenario, especially if he can stay healthy. That’s a young secondary back there!

  7. Morgus the Magnificent Says:

    “Confidence boots”? Where can I buy a pair?

  8. Lamarcus Says:

    Only issue I have with VH3 is he small. Like small. JJ and Mike Thomas comes to town….look out

    Sure the D is better…because we signed all those big money FA’ Vets and got rid of most all of our bad D players from last year…didn’t we? Coaching isn’t important.
