There's plenty of stories about Simeon Rice's release, such as this one detailing the machinations behind it by Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. And Rice certainly had some harsh words for head coach Jon Gruden, reports Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.
Joe Henderson said just one thing about the Rice release — the Buccaneers had better be right about this, he wrote in the Tampa Tribune.
Ronde Barber might not have been happy about Rice's release, either. The veteran cornerback, though, believes there are more pressing things to consider for this season, like taking action to turn around last year's 4-12 season, according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.
Gary Shelton weighed in with his opinion, and he believes that Rice's release may just sack the Buccaneers for a loss, he wrote in the St. Petersburg Times.
