Bucs have a blast in first rookie talent show



Bucs coach Raheem Morris said the team held a rookie "talent show" Wednesday night to end training camp, and - turns out - "it was way beyond my expectations of funny."

"It was all good and clean," Morris said. "But for the most part, it was teammates, building character, bonding, having fun and it was great."

The star, apparently was rookie punter Brent Bowden, who showed off his electric guitar skills by playing everything from hip hop to Guns 'N Roses.

The rest? Well, let's have Morris' review of the show:

"We've got some talented rookies, I had no idea our punter (Bowden) could absolutely put on a concert with a guitar, he’s phenomenal, unbelievable. He can play that thing. He played a bunch of different songs, he started with a bunch of hip hop to appeal to his audience and ended that thing with Guns N' Roses, it was very impressive.

"I had no idea (Preston) Parker was a better imitator than me. He was great. I had no idea, I should have known that Brian Price can do the 'Dougie (Dance)' just as good as anybody on TV. These guys, freak athletic guys, D-linemen, to see these guys dancing. It was fun, it came out big time, they put together really a spoof on Buccaneer football and Buccaneers training camp. It was unbelievable."

And Morris made something clear.

"You guys (media) will never ever see it."
