Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jeff Garcia is apologizing after a gaffe regarding the announcement of the Bucs third round draft pick left Garcia a bit testy. Monday night, Garcia announced that he would be announcing the Buccaneers third round selection in this year's NFL Draft. The only problem is that Tampa does not posses a third round pick, following their trade with the Giants for Jason Pierre-Paul. Tampa Bay Times reporter Greg Auman pointed that out, which led to:
Whatever the pick is, I’ll be announcing one. Don’t turn this into some clown show dude. I could care less about who they pick nor do I pay any attention as to what picks they have or don’t have. I have a life.— Jeff Garcia Football (@JeffGarciaJGFA) April 24, 2018
After sleeping on it, it seems Garcia had a changed of heart and decided to apologize for coming off as he did.
My bad @Buccaneers fans and @gregauman wasn’t trying to be a dick, I wouldn’t have said it was an honor if it wasn’t but I would have liked to have been informed that they didn’t have a 3rd before I tweeted it, just was a bit of embarrassment. Loved my time in Tampa & the fans.— Jeff Garcia Football (@JeffGarciaJGFA) April 24, 2018
My bad Greg. Just caught me in a moment man. I wouldn’t say it was an honor if I didn’t care, I don’t know the logistics of how things go and figured if it wasn’t a 3rd, it would be another. Hope all is well man.— Jeff Garcia Football (@JeffGarciaJGFA) April 24, 2018
While Garcia doesn't really look good here, leave it to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to forget to tell someone that their role may be changing given that the pick they were supposed to announce doesn't exist anymore.
