Bryant Disgusted Over Thoughts That He Quit

Tampa Bay Buccaneers soon to be free agent receiver Antonio Bryant, whom the team placed the franchise tag on in 2009, after a stellar season in 2008, in which the Bucs reward his  83 catch, 1,248 yards and 7 touchdown performance by paying $9.88 million dollars as the teams franchise player. Voiced his displeasure back in March over the lack of a long term contract to members of the media, by telling reporters  “I’m not unhappy about being a franchise player.”

Bryant, now has another bone to pick. This time its not so much with the team that helped resurrect his career, but rather the fans and media who cover his career, over the assumed notion. That he quit on the Bucs in ’09. Telling JoeBucsfan.com “I feel really disgusted to be honest. ‘Oh I quit, I get hurt all the time.’ I’m disgusted by that. For the most part, I never get hurt. I only missed six total games in my career, and three this year.”

    Now maby I’m missing something because I haven’t had cable the past months. But I’ve just got to know, why in the world we’re not keeping Bryant around for years to come!!??

    Cody – Think it comes down to his frustration level with his role in the offense. Then some in the front office questioned his motive when he voiced his displeasure, that the team was more worried about grooming Josh Freeman then winning on Sunday’s this past season. Which has Mark Dominik second guessing resigning him this offseason.
