Biggs: More trouble reported for Bucs' Talib
One Tampa deejay was suspended for his comments earlier this week that the Glazer family had put the Buccaneers up for sale as a result of losing hundreds of millions of dollars in investments with billionaire thief Bernie Madoff.
The Glazers strongly denied the report and the originator of the story has been suspended indefinitely.
Another Tampa radio host has reported a mutiny of sorts during the Bucs’ disastrous trip across the pond to play the New England Patriots in London. Steve Duemig of 620 WDAE-AM reported on Friday that cornerback Aqib Talib swore repeatedly with the word starting with F at coach Raheem Morris after he blew curfew during the team’s trip. Duemig cited witnesses to the incident in the team’s hotel lobby.
Talib was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly assaulting a cab driver in August. Talib got into a fight with former teammate Cory Boyd at the NFL rookie symposium last year, and back in the spring he got into a fight at practice and in swinging his helmet at teammate Donald Penn he struck cornerback Torrie Cox, a blow that required stitches to close.
So, while it may be an uneventful bye weekend for some members of the Bucs, Talib may have some answering to do soon with Morris, especially if he unloaded on the coach in the hotel as Duemig reported.
