I finally had enough conversations and decided I would play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Court! All the madness, and then all the hate, and then all the tweets because everyone’s angry, I didn’t go to their team – I’m sorry. I went with the best deal I had, the best opportunity to go out there and put on some good tapes, to lead another band. I feel comfortable and confident in my ability to go out there, execute and help this team win. … It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. I weighed all the options with my wife and family, and this is what we found.

Grand Reception Corps – elite reception corps. A formidable front seven, grizzly, veteran and a very talented front end. It is an opportunity that I could not pass up. It’s a team that has proven itself. I just have to go and prove those old legs still have juice.

If that doesn’t work, then maybe the real Schefter needs to watch his back.
