10 Beagles And Bad Draft Intel

May 10th, 2021

Bucs rookie linebacker/rabbit shooter K.J. Britt

Leading up to the NFL Draft, a majority of prospects are advised by their agents of when they’ll be drafted.

The advice is not always accurate.

Take rookie Bucs linebacker K.J. Britt, the Bucs’ hard-hitting pick in Round 5. Per a feature on SI.com, Britt was advised he’d be a fourth-round pick. Instead, the Bucs took him with the last traditional selection of the fifth round, just prior to eight supplemental draft selections.

Man, Joe would be sweating. Imagine thinking you’re going at No. 125 and you’re taken at No. 176, like Britt was.

No worries for Britt, though, he’s fired up now, but coming to Tampa will mean giving up the Alabama country life he adores. Britt is an avid rabbit hunter and, per the feature, cares for 10 beagles that assist him.

“During the offseason or anytime football is over, rabbit hunting is a big source of my joy,” Britt said. “I make sure that my dog kennels are intact. I love them, man. It’s country living.”

Joe has a great feeling about Britt making the roster and fitting right in under Devin White’s wing.

    He and Devin White might just get along

  2. Buczilla Says:

    That’s pretty damn cool and beagles are great dogs.

    Why does he have dogs in chicken coops?

    Common farm sense

    LOL Don’t think Britt’s going to find too many apartments in New Tampa that will let him have 10 beagles.

  7. jvato24 Says:

    We like them Country boys and Alabama hometown Boys here in Tampa and I’m here for it

  8. R.O. Says:

    Look… not big fan of locking dogs in cages let alone any animal. I don’t care how you spin it. Humans on the other hand I have no issue..

  9. Darin Says:

    There’s plenty of rabbits around here too. Dont kill em all tho Britt! The universe still must go on. Also not much difference between 125 and 175. Comes down to need at that point. We’ve all seen guys go three to four rounds later or earlier. The Seahawks and Saints love taking guys 3 rounds early

  10. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I could be mistaken but one of those beagles looked just like VH3…..

  11. Robert Says:

    A Country Boy Can Survive! I like it.

  12. windbaggery Says:

    I hope he doesn’t intend to keep those dogs in a chicken coop in Tampa heat, not that Alabama is much better… Seems a little cruel.

  13. David Says:

    As a domesticated bunny owner, one that has full reign over the house and is potty trained, don’t like the rabbit hunting.
    And I don’t care what people say, I don’t like keeping any animal in a cage of any kind.

    As for football… LFG

  14. Bird Says:

    The man likes to hit people

    He is in good company with white and lavonte
    He can work on coverage but lavonte and improving white are perfect teachers

  15. I CARE NOW Says:


    The Dogs are not kept in cages year round. Look up what a “Kennel” is used for.

    Also, nothing wrong with Hunting Rabbits. Signed Elmer Fud

  16. Marques Says:

    I hate dogs in cages. If you can’t have them run around don’t have them. This is animal cruelty.

    Lose the cages or cut him. I’m serious.

    Don’t give the country living excuse either.

  17. Drsesq Says:

    He will fit right in. He can get a place in Plant City and it is a short drive to the facilities from there.

  18. Bucsfanman Says:

    I have a Beagle/Foxhound mix and man is he vocal. It’s definitely the Beagle in him because we’ve had/have a Red-Tick Coonhound and a Plott Hound and they are/were nowhere near as vocal.
    Thankfully we have a house with a good sized yard.
    In fairness to K.J., we do have to crate him when we leave the house. While hounds are loyal as heck to their humans, they are scent hounds and will put their nose down and take you for a ride when they’re on the hunt. It’s the breed.

    K.J. looks to be a nice depth piece. He’s a hard-nosed LB who likes to hit and has a nose for the football.

  19. Redblud Says:

    Anyone making a comment about dogs in cages, get over yourselves. Bet none of y’all vegetarians. How do y’all feel about the Hogs/Cows/Chickens y’all eat daily, and how they’re treated. It’s an animal. And by the looks of it, they seem to be living well and taken care of.

  20. SOEbuc Says:

    10 beagles! That’s a loud crowd.


  21. SB~LV Says:

    Lol … bunch of city slickers got their skinny jeans and man buns all in a twist.

  22. Colin in Canada Says:

    Hopefully after he makes some NFL money he’ll buy a nice place for his dogs

  23. Show Me the TDs Says:

    He can do whatever he wants with his dogs as long as it’s humane and legal. I love idiots telling other people how to live! Dogs looked pretty damn happy and not skittish, at all. You want to know what’s cruel…keeping a rabbit in the house or overfeeding pets.

  24. Kennel Brockman Says:

    It’s not a cage, don’t be ignorant.

  25. Anonymous Says:

    If you have lived the country life you would know you don’t make house pets out of your hunting dogs, you do provide them with safe shelter for what ever weather that is custom for your area, you feed and take care of them i.e worm, deflea and other such. You love them regardless, but keeping them in a pen does NOT mean they are abused or neglected.

  26. Swampbuc Says:

    I can totally imagine Devin White getting him into horses and the two of them hunting wild boar on horseback. Except those two crazies wouldn’t use guns, they’d just jump off the horse and tackle the big pig, putting it down by hand!

  27. Bucsfan77 Says:

    if you have lived the cou try life you know you don’t make house pets out of your hunting dogs, yes you provide safe clean and humane shelter, you worm, deflea,and you love them but just because you keep them in a pen that doesn’t mean they are abused.

    Maybe you should loan him the money to get rid of the cages or better yet just walk right into your closet and let him pawn that fur coat you’ve got or those nice gator shoes and belt you have.

  29. TampaTown Says:

    Just because those dogs are in a crate doesn’t mean they are abused. I would bet he treats those dogs like his children and the crates may have just been for feeding time. And must people don’t know that rabbits will use a litter box if you provide one for them.

    Oxford, Alabama not to be confused with Oxford in England

  31. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    If it’s good enough for illegal migrants….should be good enough for Beagles.

  32. alaskabuc Says:

    Did you all see in his interview that Britt is related to Kwon? Got a good feeling about this kid long term.

  33. jvato24 Says:

    Imagine this guy on goal line in this defense as an additional linebacker, holy smokes this guy can hit-and-run

    geez sounds like a bunch of old ladies complaning about a dog in a crate…

    I hate dogs in cages. If you can’t have them run around don’t have them. This is animal cruelty.

    First off if those dogs were in their pens 24/7 do you think they would be worth a damn rabbit hunting? C’mon man Think.
    Second do you eat chicken? Beef? Bacon? Do you own leather shoes?
    All those animals were in real cages from the day they were born just for our consumption

  36. Buxszntkt Says:

    OK Britt, time to read and respond to your teams fan sites ! How many hours do you lock those poor dogs inside those tiny cages ? Looks pretty friggin CRUEL to me ! Are they your circus animals ? Let those gods out and run !

  37. Buxszntkt Says:


  38. BradyBucs Says:

    If these dogs spend the majority of their non-hunting time living in these chicken coops, that IS pretty cruel.

    For all you idiots using ‘strawman’ arguments and Whataboutisms about cows/pigs/etc. (food sources) being kept in cages too, it isn’t relevant to someone keeping their dogs in cages like this. Dogs have a completely superior intellect and nervous system than cattle. They’re scientifically proven to have greater emotional feelings, reactions to trauma, etc.

    There’s no way to spin this… it’s incredibly cruel to these dogs to keep them in such a confined space. “Crating” a dog is done for temporary reasons, not to make it a permanent confined space to live full-time in.

  39. Marques Says:

    Anyone bashing my response is just ignorant. Let me put you in a pen/cage for a week and see if you would feel the same.

    We not in China. Some of that culture eat dogs. It’s illegal in North America.

    For a reason reason!!!

    When I see a pen like that I think of puppy mills and there is nothing positive about them.

    I stand by my comments. There is nothing pleasant about a caged dog let alone one small pen containing multiple dogs.

    There is right and wrong. This is overwhelming wrong.

  40. Rod Munch Says:

    There’s a lot of cupcakes here, a lot of them. I guess the NFL’s campaign to bring in women is working.

  41. SB~LV Says:

    I’ll sit this one out, It is hard enough talking sense into loinfomofo’z about football with statistics.
    Talking about dogs in cages is a emotional judgment.
    Actually those dogs are in those elevated pens for good reason and safety. They get plenty of out of “cage” time before being put back into safety.
    If you know anything about the breed they are programmed for scenting and hunting. He would lose 2/3 of his dogs if left outside on their own. They catch a scent and the primal switch clicks and they will be 5 miles away before they stop for a rest.
    I’d bet those dogs are healthier and happier than your overweight house dog.

  42. SB~LV Says:

    I’d say a dog enclosed in a yard with a buried “electric fence “ and shock collar is in a much crueler existence

  43. Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says:

    I don’t believe in cages for animals. I had a tenant that hunted rabbits quite a bit. His beagle lived in the house with him. I don’t believe you need 10 beagles to hunt a rabbit. You would use 10 hounds(longer legs) to hunt foxes on horseback.

    It’s very interesting to hunt rabbits with a beagle. The dog has short legs and can never actually catch the rabbit but forces him to run in a big circle to come back to where you first saw him. Then you take him out with a shotgun.

    I am a vegetarian but I don’t condemn hunting rabbits. In some places like Australia, it’s necessary to keep the population down but now it’s illegal to own a shotgun in Australia.

    You don’t use 10 beagles to hunt rabbits, Britt is a breeder. They cost too much to feed to have 10 hunting dogs.

    Remember Michael Vick?

  44. Buczilla Says:

    I LOVE dogs (currently have 4) and I totally get both sides of the argument here, but you have got to understand that different breeds of dogs have been bred for hundreds of years to do specific things. I had a beagle for many years and she was a lap dog (which any breed of dog can be if you bring them up that way). However, beagles were bred to hunt and there is nothing in their world that makes them happier then to do so with the exception of maybe getting love from their humans.

    I don’t hunt rabbits or anything else for that matter, so I don’t know the specifics, but I seriously doubt that KJ is abusing or mistreating his dogs in any way. I’d have an issue if he is keeping his dogs in a cage for hours on end, but I doubt that that is the case. I mean, crate training is a thing and it’s a regular practice for dogs to sleep in their cages at night. All but one of mine sleeps in the damn bed with me and my wife, but there are folks that won’t allow that. 😜

  45. Irishmist Says:

    He might not have done himself any favors letting people know he hunts rabbits. His teammates will probably be calling him Elmer now.

  46. Jim Says:

    It’s better than hearing he keeps 10 fighting dogs at home, right #7?

  47. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    My dog doesn’t like monikers either…..

  48. BuddhaBuc Says:

    My dog eats dog cagers. The circle of life.

  49. gp Says:

    If that is true, then you are not a good pet owner.
    Just sayin

  50. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    If I ever get another dog, I want it to be a brown and white Beagle Pup.

  51. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    R.O. Says
    “Look… not big fan of locking dogs in cages let alone any animal.”

    Nothing wrong with it at all. Pet shops do it. The pound does it. Pet adoption places do it. Many dog owners do it.

    I had a pet dog that if we told him to go to his room, he would go lay in his cage.

    And as far as everyone complaining about hunting rabbits, nothing wrong with that either. These are not the domesticated rabbits you own as pets. In fact, some states have hunting season for wild rabbits for population control.

    And rabbit can be tasty.

  52. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Ghost of Darrell Henderson Says
    “Remember Michael Vick?”

    A suggestion like that is out of line. And, just for the record…it doesn’t say that he uses all the dogs on every hunt. Nor does it say he goes hunting alone.

  53. Buczilla Says:

    @Buccaneer Bonzai

    Well said! Dogs and humans have been hunting together for tens of thousands of years. They are as much ours, as we are theirs. Rescue one and you will have a friend forever.

  54. Chillbuc Says:

    No difference between a crate and a chicken coop. Those dogs are fine! Some of you dudes need to toughen up just a bit. Those are working dogs and are well cared for. We hunt down here in the south in case y’all haven’t heard. Go Bucs and tough dudes!!

  55. Cainishere Says:

    Really like Britt he should be glad where he landed. He probably gets a ring his rookie season. Not a fan of caging dogs at all I don’t care where you live. Dogs have it kind of rough in this world as it is. They seem there just to do a task and that’s all their worth. Didn’t even talk to them. Shame to me bad representation of his character. I smell a Michael Vick. Just sayin.
