Fastest Man in the World goes to Bucs Tryout: No Kidding!

The FASTEST MAN IN THE WORLD has made his way to Bucs Camp for Try-Outs.

Justin Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic Gold medalist in the 100 meters, has given up the Track for the Gridiron. You could say a doping scandal in 2006 has Gatlin turning toward football, but we here at Buc'Em like to keep it positive heading into the weekend (The scandal ended up in an Eight Year Ban for the track star). Gatlin is transitioning this weekend into trying to learn Head Coach Jon Gruden's offensive system:

"I've got the speed thing down," Gatlin said after the Bucs first mini camp practice. "Now I have to learn my routes."

Gatlin would provide some much needed speed in the return game should he be able to harness the ability to play on Special Teams. Good Luck Justin!
