This guy traveled from Germany to get a Bucs tryout

New, comments

Someone just traveled from Germany to stand outside One Buc Place and get a job with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Or at least a tryout, I guess. Impressive commitment, I would say.

That URL leads to a highlight video from his time with the Franken Knights in Burgoberbach, Bavaria, Germany.

I...don’t think that highlight reel is quite enough to get you a roster spot, but maybe the Bucs will give him a tryout. I mean he looks good, but y’know.....random German team...against what look like rather slow players, by NFL standards.

Akins doesn’t actually appear to be from Germany, just to have played there in his free time last year.
