Buccaneers: Team supports Pittman
Jun 4, 2003 11:12 AM ET
Running back Michael Pittman worked out with Tampa Bay on Tuesday, and his teammates showed that they are behind him despite his recent domestic violence arrest, the Tampa Tribune reported. "It's one of our teammates, someone we care about," strong safety John Lynch summarized. "I don't like this at all. I don't like seeing our players' pictures in the newspaper," head coach Jon Gruden said. "Regardless of what the accusations are, I don't like this. I'm concerned about it obviously for a lot of reasons, not just for winning and losing, but for the general well being of our football players." As far as planning for possible life without Pittman, Gruden noted that all the facts needed to come forward first, but also that the "will evaluate this situation immediately, thoroughly and if we need to make a contingency plan, we will make one."
Gruden and Lynch took the politically correct path on Tuesday. We're all for cutting Pittman at this point, but the Bucs will wait until all the facts are out before making a move.
