Kenyatta: "The record speaks for itself"



We just had to share this because we know how polarizing Kenyatta Walker can be around here. As you might already know, the former Bucs offensive tackle has signed with the Panthers. Today, he gave his first interview.

He said he has no issues with the Panthers defensive lineman, including Kris Jenkins, with whom he once had a run-in. Ditto, he said, with Julius Peppers, who typically dominated Walker in their intense, twice-yearly matchups.

Then, talk turned to the Bucs and Walker's feelings toward the organization.

Walker_2 "I have nothing bad to stay about Gruden and all of that," Walker said. "But the record speaks for itself. They only won one Super Bowl over there and I was the starting right tackle. I don't think they're winning one anytime soon."

"What happened over there, a lot of it was (because of) how young I was at the time. There was not a lot of trust and appreciation for each other. I've moved on, but the record speaks for itself."

If the record does speak for itself, I'm not sure what it says. Any thoughts?
