Thread: Kareem Huggins

    Kareem Huggins

    Bucs fans - tell me a little more about this Kareem Huggins guy. It sounds more and more like he will be the primary backup to Cadillac.

    Where did he come from, and what happened to Derrick Ward?

    It's where you end up if you go on a bender in Morrocco.

    Derrick Ward has failed to do anything in Tampa Bay. He is a huge bust for them considering they gave him a new contract before last season. Now he is injured and Cadillac is a walking talking leg injury, so it's very likely Huggins will get a load of work this season.

    To fill in you guys in.. Kareem Huggins is a undrafted Free Agent out of Hofstra who the Bucs signed last year to try out contract last year after the draft. Raheem basically only signed him to give him a shot at the Training Camp roster last year because they had gone to the same college and basically as a favor to someone. He came into the Rookie Mini-camp and just flat out impressed everyone with his speed and so they signed him to a Training Camp contract where while he didn't make the final 53, he was one of the last cuts and placed on the pratice squad. Towards the end of the year he was activated to the 53 man roster thanks to injuries and played decently. However, during OTA's and TC this year is where he has begun to truly shine. He's speed combined with his recklessness and pure energy have lifted him up in the eyes of the organization. Thanks to Clifton Smith being out with injuries and Ward just flat out not impressing, Huggins has slowly been working his way from 4/5th string back depending how you count Earnest Graham to a battle for the 2nd string back with Ward. Since no one ever know when Caddy will injuried again, the 2nd string back in TB is kind of important and so this Undrafted FA guy out is without a doubt making the 53 and might be one of the reasons why the Bucs might release C.Smith in the final cuts.
