He brings attitude to an offense, something the Bucs could have used. Bet his favorite movie wasn't the Little Mermaid.

Gas $4 a gallon, Thank you all who voted for the Socialist.

That's all well and good to take a stand Dez, but he's got to realize there's some battles you can't win. He's gonna be on an island over this issue with the veterans. I'm sure they will "convince" him to go along with the rookie rituals through some means. Awful tough to fight off a bunch of determined 250-300 lbs football players with several rolls of duct tape and a goal post around.

Starting off as a bad teammate.  Why is he acting like he is the only one going through anything like this?  All rookies in every sport have to put up with some type of "hazing."  You are paid millions to play a sport.  Is it really that difficult to carry someone's pads during training camp for your 1st year in the league?  Get over yourself ...

Right now Dez is better than Williams.  It's Williams that should be carrying Bryants pads.

Maybe Roy should carry his pads. Maybe now the spot light will be off of him and maybe he will actually play. Now that he is considered the 3rd WR on that team maybe he can live up to those goals and expectations. Grow up Roy. Kind of get sick of the rookie hazing thing. I know you have to earn the trust and respect but carrying someones pads, really?

Dez, may be a diva, but I agree with him on this.

Fire the cannons!!!

If it was Staubach or Smith, you carry the pads.

But it's Roy Williams.

Now, who do you think the teammates have more faith in, a young guy with loads of potential and play making ability or close to mediocre hop along Roy Williams.

You can take the boy out of the hood,..  but you can't take the hood out of the boy.

I don't think anyone expected any more from this crack-head, so it's really of no surprise.

Could it also be that Dez went to Oklahoma State and Roy went to Texas?  They are pretty big Big 12 rivals.

Diva.

And with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville.

It did just occur to me though, how funny this would have been if the bucs had drafted him and it had been Clayton handing him pads...

For good reason. Clayton would prolly just drop his pads.

I might walk into a new job thinking I'm better than 90% of the guys there, but I still don't dump all over their traditions my first day on the job.

Carrying Williams' pads isn't about validating Williams' career or ability.  It's about showing that you're willing to give up a little bit of yourself for the team.  Bryant just showed he's firmly putting himself first.

yep, its about paying your dues. Many jobs outside of sports require you to pay your dues. Your the low man on the totem pole. Not sure why this is a foreign concept to so many.
