It's all those fine lines. It's just looking for any edge.
He's a special guy. He wanted to be a Buccaneer and we wanted him to be a Buccaneer. And in just a few days of conversation we were able to reach an agreement that we think will ensure his future.

Derrick's interested in getting another (Super Bowl) ring, so he allowed us to clear up room so that we can sign some of our own players back.
He's been an outstanding performer and his next stop will be getting fitted for a (Hall of Fame) bust in Canton. I don't think there's any doubt that everybody's intention is for him to retire as a Buccaneer.
We have met with Torrie Cox regarding the seriousness of these charges. We will continue to closely monitor this situation and cooperate with the investigation completely.
It's never been our policy to discuss any type of team punishment, ... We've talked to Torrie and he knows exactly where he stands right now.

They are distractions, but they are distractions for those three individuals more than anyone else. You can see with grown men in our league, you have to overcome any type of distraction. The (New Orleans) Saints are the best example with what they overcame to win (at Carolina). I don't think it will have an effect on the team.
I met with Jay Gruden this morning and talked a lot about individual responsibility. We talked about being a part of a team, which he understood well.

Unfortunately, as I said just a few days ago, I'm not going to discuss publicly what we'll do as a club as far as discipline.
