Buccaneers defensive end Robert Ayers described his new team as “a little terrible” when speaking to reporters at mini-camp.
“The reason why I say we’re terrible is because we’re not where we want to be,” Ayers said, according to Pewter Report. “For me it’s 100 percent or nothing and if you’re not 100 percent then you’re terrible. You’re either first or your last. Right now we’re not where we need to be so that’s terrible. I want to be where we need to be. I want to get to the end of the tunnel. I want to get to the big game. I want to win. That’s all I care about is winning, so until we win we’re terrible.”
In March, Ayers signed a three-year, $21 million contact with $10.5 million guaranteed.
After recording 9.5 sacks last season for the Giants, he joins a Buccaneers team that went 6–10 and finished last in the NFC South.
