Devin White: “I Don’t Really Remember What Happened”

March 21st, 2024

Former Bucs linebacker Devin White has memory issues.

Ex-Buccaneers savior linebacker Devin White was all over the place yesterday during his news conference announcing him as a member of the Philadelphia Eages.

It felt like nobody coached up White on how to avoid talking about what he didn’t want to talk about, aka his demise last season in Tampa.

“It’s been a roller coaster. You know, a lot happened, a lot good and a lot bad. And the end of the day, I stayed myself. I stayed sane. I think I found the other side. It’s a good side.”

Asked to elaborate on the ups and downs of last season versus prior years, White said, “None of that really matters to me, I don’t really remember what happened. You know, I’m all tunnel vision on the future and what can happen in the future [with the Eagles].”

White gave Joe a good laugh. Of course White knows exactly what happened. He got benched by a head coach/defensive coordinator that was one of his greatest and most public champions, a man considered an esteemed guru of defensive football.

As far as why that happened, well, it seems White won’t be sharing for a little while.

White told Eagles media, “my No. 1 ability is leadership, leading by example.”

    Mentally soft. Like most of these younger generations.

  3. Capt.Tim Says:

    Lol. I think we might have an Idea.
    If not, Meybe Josh freeman or Russell Wilson might know

  4. Beeej Says:

    Change of scenery is often what people need. They originally had him penciled in as an outside in a 4-3, now he’s going to be inside in a 3/4. Hopefully the coach can get through to him

  5. Capt.Tim Says:

    How could philly let this guy go talk to the Media without his Handler?
    Are they Nuts?
    Even during his best days, that would have been a horrible Idea.

    And this aint his best days

  6. SC Bucs Fan Says:

    Lead by example. What a joke. What a waste. At least he helped bring us a flag.

  7. Mort Says:

    He’s drunk off of his own kool-aid.

  8. Todd Says:

    Lacks horse sense.

  9. sweti_yeti Says:

    If he thinks his #1 ability is leadership, well… it’s no wonder he flamed out here. Delusional.

  10. TomBucsFan Says:

    Enjoy the tunnel vision Philly!

  11. Aaron Says:

    Not good – hopefully he’s just rambling to the press. You can’t improve unless you recognize / own up to your weaknesses.

    Go Bucs – time for all of us to move on!

  12. dbbuc711 Says:

    He better remember where he is up there. He starts messing up and they’ll be chucking batteries at him.

  13. Nick2 Says:

    Leading by exampple?????!!!! Seriously?????? Wow that might be his worst flaw not greatest assett!!! Too funny Devon we can all remember the healthy scratch if you cant!!!!

  14. Pickgrin Says:

    White has pretty much always been too much talk and not enough action.

    Seems strange to say because the guy has so much God given talent – but the Bucs truly are better off without Devin White than with him.

    Thanks for your major contributions during the Super Bowl run Devin and good luck – I guess…..

    Enjoy those Philly fans… They are sooooo supportive and understanding of under-performing athletes in the city of brotherly love…LOL

  15. RiggedNFL Says:

    A regular Mensa candidate there. Pure wisdom spewing from his pie hole.

    If football doesn’t work out for him, Kamala Harris needs a new speech writer.

  16. Capt.Tim Says:

    . . .Kamala Harris needs a speech writer . . .

  17. Perimeter Blocker Says:

    This dude played on skates. I remember seeing the Ravens linemen having him in full reverse! I didn’t know it was legal to play with skates on…

  18. D Cone Says:

    With a Bucs Defense that was ranked 24th in total defense after the first 7 weeks and 23rd in total defense at the end with 6 games against the weakest division and one game with the Jags playing their worse football?

    Bowles is not a Guru of Jack Squat. In the game or out of the game White was not moving the needle either way so why not play the young guys? He knew White was leaving at the end of the season. Came off a little vindictive. Something a scorned woman would do. I suppose some stretch mediocre to guru and average to elite.

  19. Ben Says:

    Full of kaka

  20. OrlandoBucsFan Says:


  21. Marine Buc Says:

    After listening to this brief press conference I wonder if Devin has had one too many hits to the head.

    He sounded a little bit like Joe Frazier a few years after retirement…

  22. Beeej Says:

    anyone remember the Cosby cartoon from the 70’s? There was that ONE guy ..

  23. Buc1987 Says:

    Devin White: “I Don’t Really Remember What Happened”

    Because I suck now.

  24. matthew veal Says:

    Maybe if Devin white would have emulated Rashaad white in tge training area we could have a conversation. Ira says he didn’t, and I don’t think so either

  25. doolnutts Says:

    He is mentally soft no other explination needed. Hes got all the talent in the world but when he didn’t get the big contract extension he pouted and let it get to his head.

  26. Jmarkbuc Says:

    At least Kamala knows how to form tackle.

  27. SenileSenior Says:

    The measurable were always there. It was the intangibles similar to say, of a Lavonte David, that tell the story. I do like White anyway even though he disappointed.

    Go Bucs!

  28. Cobraboy Says:

    White makes it really easy to be glad he’s gone.

    4.5 feet, 6.0 brain, an defense Jameis…

  29. William Walls Says:

    Devin White’s a great player when you really look at it. Yeah, he loafs on some plays, but on the next play he’ll overpursue to make up for it. That’s how you be a pro. Now go be an example for the Eagles D, Devin!

  30. Bobby M. Says:

    The Jameis Winston of defense…..self belief doesn’t align with actual production. You can see the talent and desire are there but mentally there’s something missing.

  31. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    What happened?

    The Eagles tampered the year before and told him that if he got ot of Tampa, they’d take him. That’s what I choise to believe.

  32. SlyPirate Says:

    Something is not right in his head. He didn’t know what to do or where to be on the field. In that interview, he wasn’t able to recall. It sounds like dementia. I wonder if he had a bad concussion?

  33. Oneilbuc Says:

    Devin White was hurt last season I still don’t understand how y’all give surtain players passes when it comes to being injured you know like Baker Mayfield last against the Panthers and Saints but other players that’s injured they don’t get a pass for their play on the field? Lol 🤣🤣 but you call it like you see it!!

  34. Pelsbuc61 Says:

    JBF, don’t waste us readers’ time with stories of disgruntled and lazy ex Bucs. Time to move on just like he did.

  35. 2023 Surprised the Hell out of me Says:

    Good Bye Devin

  36. Crickett Baker Says:

    Do you all forget that he was a named Captain? The locker room didn’t have as bad an opinion of him as some of us do.

  37. Capt.Tim Says:

    “ I still dont understand . . .”
    We know buddy, we know.
    Weve been reading your post for a while now.

    We’ll try to go slow.
    Guys, Oneilbuc is confused! Can we slow down, and use small words!

    Remember- he’s a trask fan . . .

  38. SB~LV Says:

    Mr Ed the talking horse makes more sense than DW

  39. adam from ny Says:

    i swear i only watched his eagles presser to view him as a specimen

  40. Oneilbuc Says:

    Capt. Tim. I’m a bucs fan you are a Baker fan that’s why when he plays bad you give him every excuse in the book. And more likely you will be doing the same thing this year. And it’s not about being a Trask fan it’s about the truth. Kyle Trask was better than Baker in training camp and that’s a proven fact. Baker became the starter to sale tickets that’s a fact. And yes I don’t make up excuses for players regardless of the players. But let you and the other Baker fans say it Baker Mayfield is a hall of famer lol 🤣🤣!!

  41. Dave Pear Says:

    Oneilgirl, you really like your players and your team to suck. Obviously a deeper seated issue.

  42. G Buc Says:

    Hurt or not he missed plays and was clearly out played by a younger less expensive “Back up” .

    This is all about production. No one cares who is hurt. Was he hurt the year previous… so was every player he faced. He still over pursued and still blew plays. Yes he made some but overall its a team game and DW wasn’t playing it last coulple of years. No bias just facts.

  43. OrlandoBucFAn Says:

    I am not sure White would recognize leadership if it smacked him in the mouth.

  44. The Fighting Schianoes Says:

    Total head case. Reminds me of someone that’s seeking office.

  45. Lakeland Steve Says:

    So White will probably play his ass off this year for the Eagles and if they resign him to a long term contract the real Devin White will come out, just like it did in Tampa. We all know he has the ability he just has a heart problem. Like no heart.

  46. Buccos Says:

    He gets respect from me for the Super Bowl run. He was a fantastic young player. I think the money went to his head, along with a huge ego. To the point that he is unable or unwilling to see his own faults

  47. gotbbucs Says:

    Does not surprise me one bit that he doesn’t “remember” or understand why he got put on the shelf. His ego won’t allow him to grasp the concept.

  48. Cobraboy Says:

    ONeill is still butthurt ATM was dissed.

  49. Dr Says:

    LOL leading by example: getting dogged out of his jock by Gardner Freakin Minshew. Pathetic angle and effort.

  50. Allen Lofton Says:

    When White talks he’s full of himself. White is making excuses instead of taking responsibility for his lack of commitment to himself and his teammates.

    Until he does he’ll still be the nothing but All Talk White.

  51. Capt.Tim Says:

    Poor, poor Oneilbuc.

    Trask was better in training camp, and thats a proven fact”
    And who exactly proved THAT?
    The ONLY person who said that trask outplayed Mayfield, was Joe.
    And Joe didnt say he outplayed him all camp. Just a couple days.

    There are two Joes. One is a bright , knowledgeable guy.
    One didnt think Wirfs could switch sides, and thinks we should waste our first round pick on a QB.
    Im sure thats the Joe that saw ole noodle look good.
    And sees Hainsey open up holes in the defense!

    And that one statement, by one Joe is your “ proven Fact”
    Id believe joe saw a bigfoot surfing, before Id believe “the noodle” out performed any NFL caliber QB!

    Trask will be 3rd string this season.
    Then. CHOP!!
    Hell be better off than you. He’ll be a millionaire.
    You’ll be heartbroken- and thats a proven fact!

    Poor,poor Oneilbuc

  52. Oneilbuc Says:

    I can’t wait to see all you Baker fan boys cry and blame the OC, Todd Bowles and the running game when Baker Mayfield has bad games. The last 2 games of the season y’all were crying about how hurt Baker Mayfield was and now injuries don’t matter when it comes to Devin White lol 🤣 you guys are fake fans and once Baker leaves you guys will be gone just like the Brady fan boys!! Lol 🤣🤣 .

  53. Oneilbuc Says:

    And to all the ones that try and insult people because they have a different opinion than you. Are they have the facts to prove what they are talking about you guys are a bunch of cowards internet thugs . I can promise you cowards wouldn’t say it and no one face . Lol 🤣🤣🤣 .

  54. Oneilbuc Says:

    Every body is tough and hard on the Internet lol 🤣🤣!!

  55. Tony Says:

    Probably because you’ve fallen off that horse too much.

  56. Rod Munch Says:

    White gave Joe a good laugh. Of course White knows exactly what happened. He got benched by a head coach/defensive coordinator that was one of his greatest and most public champions, a man considered an esteemed guru of defensive football.


    I’m just a fan and I know what happened. After the Rams playoff game, when the Bucs lose the game on a blitz, Todd Bowles lost his nerve, and decided the Bucs would now be a passive zone defense – and White is not a passive zone LB.

    I hope you enjoy passive zones, because that’s the future now that Bowles has run off his top man corner and got rid of his interior blitzing LB.

  57. Dave Pear Says:

    O’Squeelgirl – you hated the Brady move. You pined for JaMiss. You love Trashk. You hate Baker. You pine for Diva White.

    Brady won us a Super Bowl when JaMiss proved he’s barely a backup in the NFL.

    Trashk is a one read version of Mike Glennon only with a weaker arm and slower brain.

    Diva was benched for lack of effort and production by another guy you defend.

    So it seems, you would prefer to suck and lose, meanwhile, almost all of those who are paid to play football and write / talk about it would say your opinions are so far removed from reality that they’re high comedy.

    You, girl, are a buffoon.

  58. BillyBucco Says:

    White is one shirtless rant through the endzone short of being Antonio Brown. I think Philly will bring out his future plain and simple. Too bad we don’t play the Eagles. Otton could have a career day. What a clown.

  59. darengibo Says:

    DW = Horses Ass

  60. Jw94buc Says:

    Devin White on playing with the Eagles. A better overall team. He wasn’t saying that when we were seal clubbing them 30 something to 9. While his ass was watching from the bench all game.

  61. Oneilbuc Says:

    Dave Queer. You are the biggest coward on here and by the way Baker is a average quarterback at best and you are celebrating a 9-8 season in a trash division. And I know you call everything hate because I don’t worship players like you do . And when it comes to Brady we’ll we saw what happened once AB and Gronk left. You settle for mediocrey I don’t and by the way you and the rest of the people need to learn how to use the word haten.

  62. Ugo Says:

    Oneilbucs: trashes Brady, who won the team a SB; pines for Jameis, D. White and Trask (all mediocre): and then has the galls to claim he doesn’t settle for mediocrity (proper spelling btw).

    The word delusional doesn’t even begin to express your point of view. Must be nice to be able to live so detached from the real world yet still believing yourself to be grounded in reality

  63. Oneilbuc Says:

    Ugo. How did I trash Brady by telling the truth? Is it trashing Brady if I bring up him throwing 3 picks in the NFC championship game and our defense stepped up? Just because I don’t give Brady all the credit for the bucs winning a superbowl in 2020 don’t mean I’m trashing him . You guys want to give Brady all the credit for the superbowl and I will never do that regardless of who the quarterback is. Patrick Mahomes had the number 3 defense last season and they won the superbowl so is Mahomes the only reason why they won the superbowl no ! The main thing Brady did was he brought in AB and Gronk I can give him credit for that but to believe he was the only reason why we won a superbowl is just stupid.

  64. Esteban85 Says:

    I really liked this fool in 2020, maybe bc I have horses and thought that was cool, maybe it was all the sacks, maybe it was the fact that he called himself a country boy. But I saw him acting a fool in the locker room one time and all the senior dudes like nacho and vita were looking at each other and rolling their eyes. It was after that video that I was like damn this dude is a fool and everyone sees it

  65. Oneilbuc Says:

    Ugo. Again when I bring up Jamies and his time here I talk about how bad the team around him was and how y’all give excuses only for the players you like!! Most of y’all on here didn’t care about the running game until Brady came here and now it’s a excuse for Baker Mayfield bad play. Most of yall didn’t care how bad the o line was until Brady came here and now it’s a excuse for Baker Mayfield and his fan boys. When Jamies was the quarterback we had a top 5 offense every year with no running game but one year and that’s a fact. Our defense was trash in every category that’s a fact. That’s what you call a bad situation for a young quarterback. I don’t care about none of these players I don’t know these guys personally. Most of yall act like you know these guys personally !! That’s why I can criticize every last one of them including Jamies or any other player in the NFL.

  66. Oneilbuc Says:

    Why do y’all have to bash every player that leaves the bucs?? Remember in the NFC championship game he made Rogers throw a incomplete pass that helped us win the NFC championship game after Brady threw his 3 picks that kept the Packers in the game!! Our defense closed that game out so I hope White nothing but the best until he plays the bucs!!

  67. AnonymousBucsFan76 Says:

    Leadership and Devin white can never be said in the same sentence…

    Selfish and Delusional sounds about right…

  68. Gator face Says:

    Honestly hope they let him fly around out there.
