Bucs' Morris impressed by Grothe's first day



Former USF quarterback Matt Grothe might not be with the Bucs beyond these three days of rookie minicamp, but head coach Raheem Morris said he's liked what he's seen of him so far.


"I was very impressed with Grothe," Morris said. "I unfortunately missed his local workout. I was able to see it on tape when I got back,and he was very impressive on that. Now, listening to him get into a huddle, you understand why he was in control of his team, why he was a guy over there at South Florida that ran the show. Just talking to him, he has the lingo of a quarterback, the mind of a quarterback, the personality of a quarterback.

"He lacks some size. I like picking on him a little bit. I told him to stand up when he was behind center. I like messing with my guys. You're talking about a sharp guy, a guy who has a lot of wins under his belt, a lot of yards. ... I can see why."

More from Grothe coming shortly ...
