Alumni day

About 50 former Bucs were invited to attend practice Monday courtesy of longtime front-office employee Jill Hobbs. Familiar faces included Steve DeBerg, Scot Brantley, Horace Copeland and Mark Royals. "Jill Hobbs has been part of the organization forever," said GM Mark Dominik. "She got a lot of guys to come out, and Coach (Raheem) Morris and I wanted to get them on the football field. So they're on the field having a great time with the players." Dominik was asked if any former Bucs can still play. "There's a couple who look pretty good," he said with a smile.

Motivating White

DE Stylez White has been in coach Raheem Morris' doghouse for lacking practice intensity, and White has not been happy about it. But could that be changing? "He probably told you that because when we walked off the field I said, 'Hey, Stylez, I like you again,' " Morris said Monday. "I just have to teach him how to practice. He is Allen Iverson. I need to see some of that stuff on the practice field so I can talk good about you to our local media. Obviously, he is a gamer. But you can't let him be a gamer when you are a coach. You've got to make him go do it in practice."

Kudos for Kareem

Rookie Kareem Huggins, a 5-9, 196-pound tailback from Hofstra, earned high marks from Morris. "The guy comes in with a freebie tryout and you beg to sign him because of the effort," Morris said. "You guys see him finishing every play. He runs to the end zone. I tell him to go 25 (yards) and he totally, completely ignores my coaching. And I'm okay with that."
