Earl Watford just happened to stumble across his name being mentioned in regards to the team not drafting a single guard in the NFL Draft this past week. The tweet in question (shown below), is the exact response every Buccaneer fan wants to read any time a player on this roster is questioned.
there is a reason why I'm here. It'd be a waste of time to sign me if I wasn't going to work and do the job I'm paid to do at the highest level. Could've drafted or signed 10 guys. Competition is fun and I like taking jobs.— Earl Watford (@EWatts78) April 30, 2019
Watford may have just been giving an honest response, but it’s so much more than that. Comments like his are what endear players to fans. It’s what makes individuals root for you. It’s why the Tampa Bay Buccaneer fan base reacted positively to this tweet.
No four words have ever made me want to root for a player more than those final four from Watford. “... I like taking jobs.” Earl Watford has put a stamp on his worthiness. Bucs Nation is behind you Mr. Watford, go get that job.
