In a show of force by new head coach Greg Schiano, who seems eager to prove that he’s a true Belichick disciple, the Buccaneers will either trade or release tight end/soldier Kellen Winslow because he skipped the start of the team’s “voluntary” OTAs. More damning to us is that the week before Winslow had been DJing in Vegas and saying things like “Creed was awesome.

Such laxity will not stand in the Schiano regime, for the new coach wants what he calls “Buccaneer Men”. That’s less a team philosophy than it is a name for the worst musical ever. But what qualities comprise a Buccaneer Man? Flamboyant ones, no doubt. We turned to one of those swashbuckling, seafaring types for insight:

ARRRGHHH A BUCCANEER MAN NEVER LEAVES HOME WITHOUT HIS SILK SCARVES

ARRRGHHH A BUCCANEER MAN ALWAYS SHOWS UP FOR OTA’S WITH A CASK OF RUM FOR HIS MATES

ARRRRGHHH A BUCCANEER MAN IS FREE TO LEAVE WHATEVER COLLEGE PIRATE SHIP HE PLEASES AT ANY TIME
