Jeff Faine via Facebook upon leaving the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.: ''I’d like to thank the Buccaneers for giving me the chance to play for my hometown team four years ago. The move is bittersweet, but I leave in great health, excited and energized for my next opportunity. Although our record wasn’t what any of us wanted it to be, I’ll look at my time in Tampa with fond memories and thankful for the many friendships made – especially the comradarie on the offensive line with Donald Penn, Jeremy Trueblood, Davin Joseph, Jeremy Zuttah. I look forward to seeing Josh Freeman and some of the other young talent become bright stars in this league.''
