"He seems to be excited. I thought they were going to put the (franchise) tag on him. When I got the word, that's when we spoke. He was in Dallas at his home and he was real excited. And that's a good thing. It's going to be interesting. It really is.'' - Richard Mann Wide Receivers Coach
For those of us that were worried about Antonio Bryant being angry with getting franchise tagged, uh, rest easy. For a guy that got paid $700+k last season, I think his new ONE YEAR $9 Million Dollar contract will keep him happy. And his Receivers Coach says as much in the quote above. Hopefully the Bucs can convince him to sign a three to four year deal at a little less money annually. Good luck with that.
