Bucs starting receiver tandem of Bryant & Clayton full tilt

Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting receiver tandem of Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton, who have been nursing injuries that prevented them from playing in all but one pre-season game and missing multiple practices during training camp told Roy Cummings, of the Tampa Tribune that they feel fine and wont spend time thinking about their respective ailments.

The most notable revelation was that Clayton, admitted to being accountable for being payed to execute on the field.

“And we’ve all been in this league long enough to know our assignments, and so it’s on us to execute. They pay us good enough to be able to go out there and do that, so we feel good about it. We should be fine.”

Not quite sure, why this hasn’t been a factor in the past. As Clayton has largely been a huge disappointment since his rookie season. But placing such a sudden emphasis on executing and being accountable now that he has cashed in on a contract that rewards him for future production and his ability as a blocker more-so then his receiving skills. Sure does seem a bit backwards.
