Tampa Bay Buccaneers Notes, Quotes 2009-05-15
--Former Bucs DT Warren Sapp says he knows there was a link between the team's collapse the final month last season and Monte Kiffin's announcement he was leaving for the University of Tennessee.


"I never heard (Derrick) Brooks that distraught on a telephone call, and I've known him since he was 17 years old, we went to the Florida-Georgia game together," Sapp said. "Once I knew he was upset, it had to filter down because that's the way this place is always built. You get your tone from your head man and Brooks was the head of it. He was absolutely out of his rock about it."

--GM Mark Dominik said the team was not surprised Kellen Winslow missed the first voluntary workout, saying Winslow was taking care of a "personal matter." Dominik said Winslow's absence is nothing the team, or its fans, should be overly concerned about.

--LB Barrett Ruud also has elected not to participate in workouts and told the team he needs some "personal days." Ruud is in the final year of his contact and is believed to be seeking an extension.

--CB Aqib Talib is embracing the Bucs' new bump-and-run defensive system under Jim Bates.

"We're definitely going to play a lot more man, more bump and run, and stuff," Talib said. "So it'll be a lot more physical, with a lot less thinking and a lot more playing ... The less thinking you've got to do, the more I like it."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've got a lot to prove. Last year was for the haters. This year is for the doubters." -- Bucs WR Antonio Bryant.
