Pewter and Read: Buccaneers News From Around The Web, June 20th, 2013


The work week is almost over, but the news cycle never stops. Here are a few more Bucs’ stories we’re reading today!

  • Josh Freeman has disappointed plenty of Buccaneers’ fans over the past couple of seasons with his inconsistent performances, but it was his no-show today at his football camp that may have been most disappointing for the kids looking to meet and play football with the Bucs’ QB. But luckily for the youngsters, Vincent Jackson and Derrick Brooks dropped by and provided them with a very worthy substitute. You can read about the whole thing over at Pewter Report.
  • Warren Sapp’s ongoing feud with Michael Strahan has taken another interesting twist, as Sapp was quoted as saying that he believes Simeon Rice, his world champion teammate in 2002, was better than the Giants’ former pass rusher. You can read all of Sapp’s amazing quotes here, courtesy of the Tampa Tribune.
  • The Bucs are being sued! Apparently they violated a rule about who they can fax with advertisements a few years ago, and a Florida business is trying to milk it for a few bucks. Check out the article breaking it down here. But the main thing to take away from this is that people will sue for anything, and that the Bucs are unlikely to pay a large amount for what is a fairly silly lawsuit.
  • And finally, in a move that comes as no surprise to anyone involved, the Buccaneers and Patriots will be holding joint practices yet again. The Bucs will head to New England early and work out with the Pats, who are certainly in the midst of plenty of drama at the moment. Not caught up on the latest news in New England? Check out the ABC News link about the situation surrounding Aaron Hernandez.

And that’s it for this Thursday edition of Pewter and Read. Stop back by tomorrow for more, and be sure to check out all the other great content on The Pewter Plank!
