The Tampa Bay Buccaneers revolving door at the return specialist position spun again, with a familiar face stepping back in.
The Tampa Tribune‘s Roy Cummings and Tampa Bay Times‘ Greg Auman are reporting that rookie Solomon Patton, the Bucs’ leading punt and kick returner who was cut in late October, may be getting his job back after Trindon Holliday, Marcus Thigpen and Bobby Rainey didn’t perform up to the organization’s expectations. Reports cite Patton’s agent, Hadley Engelhard, as confirming his signing.
No specifics as to Patton’s placement on the active roster or to the practice squad have been released as of Monday evening. The 24-year-old was most recently on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad.
Patton returned 10 punts for an 11.2-yard average and 17 kicks for a 23.1-yard average before being released. Patton was signed to the Cardinals practice squad back in October. The Buccaneers are claiming him from Arizona and will place him on their active roster where he will resume his kick return duties for Tampa Bay.
This is really hard to believe, does this coaching staff have any idea what they are doing?
NO THEY DO NOT
Where is Clifton “Peanut” Smith when you need him?
Don’t know why we EVER got rid of him in the first place! These other guys were terrible. How embarrassing! ! ! I liked him from the start and did not know why we tried these other guys, now we had to go get him off of another teams practice squad. GO Patton !!!!!
I felt the same way when we cut him. He was solid and never lost a fumble. Apparently you need to return a TD on almost every possession to make this staff happy.
And are we to now expect a different result?
Agree with makski, should not have let him go. As a team the kick returners are ALL making poor decisions – bringing out kicks from deep in the end zone with little chance of getting to the 20. Patton played well in preseason and returns the ball well, just needs to make better decisions. To me that’s a coaching issue.
Hey Scott, in your FAB5 this week, can you address possible reasons why the BUCs never seriously entertained the idea of bringing in Richie Incognito.
We have absolutely no FIRE in the oline and at least he would bring an attitude. Maybe if he ticked everyone off they would play with more anger !!!!
Wal-Mart Has IT ALL ???????
