Opinion Editorial: If there is one thing that we as Bucs fans can all agree on, it’s that Carl Nassib has earned a spot on this team due to his performance on the field last year. With a new coaching regime, there is going to be plenty of roster attrition.
In Bruce Arians introductory press conference, he is quoted as saying, “If you can’t play hard, you can’t play here.” I hope he takes that seriously. There are certain players who stick out like sore thumbs in both practices and games due to lack of effort. I Hope he takes that seriously. However, he is not going to have to worry about that when it comes to Carl Nassib. He Works his butt off, and that is extremely evident.
In limited playing time, over the course of playing 15 games and only starting in 9 of them with the Bucs this past season, Nassib amassed 2 passes defended, 2 forced fumbles, 6.5 sacks, 29 total tackles (22 solo and 7 assisted), 12 tackles for loss, and 14 QB hits.
This man deserves a spot on this roster, he deserves to start, and he deserves to get paid. From Bucs fans everywhere and all of us here at Bucs Life News, Carl Nassib, you are a beast, keep on bringing it every single play! Go Bucs!
