With the Buccaneers in hot water after the league office determined via a check of phone records that seven calls were placed to players (coach Raheem Morris made at least three of them), the question becomes whether other teams will land in the lobster pot, too.
Given the manner in which the Bucs were busted — Morris sarcastically thanked JoeBucsFan.com for pointing out that a post on the site regarding June 2011 radio remarks from Morris in which he acknowledged to being in touch with players “all the time” — the Titans presumably are being investigated, too. Receiver Kenny Britt told 104.5 The Zone in August that he heard from receivers coach Dave Ragone “all summer long.”
Neither the league nor the Titans will discuss the matter. Contacted by PFT, the team deferred to the league. The league opted not to get into the issue at all.
It’s still unknown whether the Bucs, or anyone else, will face a fine or some other type of discipline. During the lockout, it was reported that coaches who violated the no-contact rule will be fired for cause, blocking any severance pay. It’s a safe bet that no one will be getting fired.
