Ringchasers with the Buccaneers?
Bruce Arians was asked about the potential to swap out some of our guys seeking that big payday with other vets around the league who might have already had their payday in their prolific careers but never got that affirmation that a Super Bowl ring provides, whether that’s personal motivation or dreams of living forever in Canton: a.k.a. ring chasers. A perfect example of this is LeSean McCoy who is a good luck charm first of all, and you could put his highlight tape next to anybody, yet he ends back-to-back Super Bowl wins with a stat line of 0 yards, 0 carries, and 0 receptions.
Bruce dispelled this myth that guys in the building are willing to take millions of less just to stay with Tom Brady immediately. But he also said he loves his core and thinks that anything the Buccaneers might lose “in-house” they’d hopefully be able to hit on in the draft, just like last year. Sorry to those rooting for the potential ring-chasing desires of Adrian Peterson, Odell Beckham Jr., Patrick Peterson, T.Y. Hilton, and probably a whole sleuth of other veterans out there! Their ring chasing dreams and any fans dreaming of seeing them in Buccaneers uniforms may have to file them under the “pipedream” category.
