just saw on espn ticker...maybe old news but i didnt see it
Too bad he's such a punk. He's a pretty good player.
The Rams should grab him fast. They need WRs badly.
We should grab him fast...again...he's better than WRRW11
ok the ticker says released but the site says 'let walk' same thing i guess.
Morris said the Bucs will not sign Bryant and he’ll be allowed to walk in free agency. Again, this is no surprise because Bryant had sealed his own fate – with a disappointing and injury-filled season and by being publicly critical of quarterback Josh Freeman and the coaching staff. Oh, it also didn’t score Bryant a lot of points when he blamed the flight back from London for causing some of his knee problems.
Sad thing is, Bryant could have wound up being a really positive story for the Buccaneers. He had plenty of problems early in his career, but had a big year for the Bucs in 2008. In one of their few wise moves of 2009, the Bucs put the franchise tag on Bryant, instead of locking him up with a long-term contract.
The hope was he’d go out and show he deserved a long-term deal. He didn’t.
What a knucklehead...he had a TON of potential.
Up until last year I thought he had finally smartened up.
But like ol Forrest said "Stupid is as Stupid Does."
On the nosey.
That's why talent alone is not what makes a player great, it takes a great attitude and approach to the game and too many of these talented players don't have a great attitude.
Give me guys like Mike Singletary, Steve Largent or Emmitt Smith, guys who work hard to overcome deficiencies in talent or physical abilities, and I will win every time.
Exactly on point.
Talent alone simply doesn't get it done in a team sport. You've got to have talented players with the right attitudes and approaches. I couldn't agree more with you. Excellent post.
The guy is actually very smart...just a thug. Total waste of talent.
39 Catches, 600 Yards, 4 TDs.
38 Catches, 596 Yards, 7 TDs.
Which one is which?
Regardless, Bryant is a problem child and Williams is not. That alone should be the differentiator between the two but I'm sure it won't be.
Williams has been somewhat of a problem child with us thus far and he's done absolutely nothing.
Bryant was the best WR in college football... I'm still pissed it didn't work out here in Dallas.
There are a lot of former "Best (insert position here) in college football" that never panned out in the big league. Every team in the NFL has had players with a C5's cargo hold of talent and promise whose eventual contribution to the team could be measured in full within the confines of an empty Cophenhagen tin. Concurrently, each team in the NFL has had players that did squat with their team that went on to productive or semi-productive careers with other teams.
Dallas is not unique in that regard, nor can the fans our of chosen team hold ourselves unique for a self punishing flagellation who's inspiration lies in the root of a particular player's shortcomings.
They could trade down a few slots now and get Dez Bryant. or stay put and grab a stud DT or OT, then grab a guy like Lafell at the top of round 2.
I'm listening from a guy from the tampa tribune. He's saying the Reason they're letting bryant go is because of knee issues and he's 29 and they want a WR who's going to grow with Freeman. He said the bucs will miss Bryant's PLAYMAKING ability.
very true burmafrd: the guy is just a DOPE. Always has been, always will be. 10 million dollar talent with a ten cent mind.
