Donald Penn update

Here is some Donald Penn stuff from the start of August. Pretty good quotes from head coach: Penn, who signed a one-year tender worth $2.7 million as a restricted free agent this off-season, missed several voluntary workouts due to being unhappy about not receiving a long-term contract from the Bucs.However, Bucs head coach Raheem Morris has liked what he has seen from Penn, who has started 28 games in three seasons in Tampa Bay.”Donald Penn has all the talent in the world,” said Morris. “As far as him progressing right now, it’s with his position coach [Pete Mangurian]. I can see those two forming a bond, starting to have fun together. They can actually yell at each other and get a little smirk or grin at the end of the deal. Donald Penn is working on his weight, it’s coming down. He’s starting to get into the best shape of his life. He’s working harder. He understands the concepts. He understands the system. He’s getting better and better every day. He’s got a tough coach, one who will be on him every day. You’re talking about a guy who came from the bottom, who has no ego.”
