Simeon Rice Wants to Be a Buccaneer

Simeon Rice hasn’t played in the NFL since 2007, but the former Pro Bowl defensive end appears willing to put his fledgling film career on hold if Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris reaches out for a free spirit who turned 37 last month according to Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.

“All I know is my services are ready if they’re ready,’’ Rice said after his 30-minute short, “When I Was King,’’ was screened at the Gasparilla Film Festival in Hyde Park. “When Raheem smartens up before I turn 40, whenever they need a guy off the edge, just call.’‘

Rice was half-kidding. In his heart, he knows that call isn’t going to come. Not that the Bucs don’t need a player with his former skills off the edge.

    In other news, I want to be a Buccaneer.

    That said, when your pass rush was as poor as the Bucs was last year, you should be turning over every rock, signing guys from the CFL, keeping extra ends on the Practice Squad and looking for trades.
