Reporting to training camp sporting a new, red hairstyle, a very eager Kwon Alexander seems ready and willing to prove himself. After being left off of the NFL rankings, the Bucs defense has been underrated thus far. In an interview on Thursday Alexander said, “First of all, we just all have to come together. We’re not worrying about what everybody else is thinking right now. We come together, we play together as a team and as a family, we can do a lot of big things. That’s all we’re worrying about right now.”
Even though the Bucs defense ended on a strong note last season, he admitted that it took some time getting to that point saying, “We’re going to hit the ground running we’ve played in this system already it took us a little minute last year to get it all together, then we made our run. Now we’re comfortable with the system. Everybody just has to get back into the playbook and get it all down pat with no mistakes. We need no mistakes and no big plays, and then we’re going to do a great job.” He also added, “I’m ready to go today. If I could go out there today, I would, I was so happy to see them in there, all excited and ready to go. There’s a lot of energy in the locker room.”
Friday brings the first practice of training camp, I, for one, am excited to see what these guys have in store for us this season. And I have said it before, but I will say it again, I think this is the year our team gets the attention and recognition they deserve!
