The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been adding players to their roster left and right so far in free agency, but they have also let some players go. The most recent is center Jeff Faine, who had this to say about his being released, via Bucs Nation.
''I’d like to thank the Buccaneers for giving me the chance to play for my hometown team four years ago. The move is bittersweet, but I leave in great health, excited and energized for my next opportunity. Although our record wasn’t what any of us wanted it to be, I’ll look at my time in Tampa with fond memories and thankful for the many friendships made – especially the comradarie on the offensive line with Donald Penn, Jeremy Trueblood, Davin Joseph, Jeremy Zuttah. I look forward to seeing Josh Freeman and some of the other young talent become bright stars in this league.''
Faine was the center of the Buccaneers line for a number of years, so it is understandable that he would be upset with his release, but he handled with class and like a true professional.
