As players began to report for camp, excitement swirled around One Buc Place. Lavonte David took to the podium along with a few of his teammates. In the offseason, David boasted that the Bucs defense would come back this season with fury. Today, he was able to speak about these issues again.
David was questioned from the start if this is the most confident the team has been.
“Yeah, honestly yes, I believe so. Not just from the old guys but the young guys. They’re getting real comfortable. Everybody’s walking around with a big smile on their face, man. Everybody’s looking and feeling great, and ready to go,” David said.
David is a player that tends to wear his heart on his sleeve. He’s far from shy when expressing his feelings. Let’s not forget the “we could be the best defense ever” statement. Although quite confident about Mike Smith’s defense, should Bucs fans expect a quick turnaround?
