Bucs looking into tweet during draft threatening GM

TAMPA — Buccaneers team security is investigating a threatening tweet directed at general manager Jason Licht.

But the man responsible for the Twitter post and who identified himself as Mike Rogers, 38, of Houston said he was upset with the Bucs' selections in the NFL draft this past week and meant no harm.

"Yes, that was a total exaggeration," Rogers said Sunday when reached by the Tampa Bay Times. "Just caught up in the moment. It was just a tasteless tweet. I'm not a psychopath."

Licht said he was aware of the tweet but had no comment. The tweet had been removed late Sunday after the Times had contacted Rogers.

On Friday night, shortly after the Bucs selected North Carolina defensive back M.J. Stewart with the No. 53 overall pick in the second round, Rogers posted a series of angry tweets, including one that appeared to cross the line.

The tweet featured a GIF of a murder scene from the 1990 film King of New York depicting a drug lord killing a New York City Police Department narcotics officer with blood splattering inside the vehicle.

Rogers, using his Twitter handle @LuvDemNoles22, wrote above the GIF: "When I see Jason Licht next time I roll through Tampa."

Licht, 47, presided over his fifth NFL draft as Bucs GM this weekend.

On Thursday in the first round of the draft, the Bucs traded down with the Bills from No. 7 overall to No. 12 and selected University of Washington defensive tackle Vita Vea. The other player who had been linked to the Bucs in many mock drafts, Florida State safety Derwin James, was still available when they chose Vea.

Rogers said he would've preferred for the Bucs to have taken James.

"I wanted (Quenton) Nelson really bad, but then he went off right before us," Rogers said, referring to the former Notre Dame guard taken No. 6 overall by the Colts. "Then we traded back. James was still there and a huge position of need. I mean, we have (Chris) Conte back, and he's a huge liability in my opinion. I also think James not working out for teams hurt his stock, but I don't blame him. They have tape and combine to go off of."

Rogers said he grew up in Naples and has been a Florida State football fan since the '80s.

Ok, who here was it? His comments about James not working out for teams not mattering because they have tape and the combine, I swear I read that exact line in the draft forum leading to draft.


Come on, own up to it! Haha



Doctor, is it you? You were upset that we missed on Nelson.

I figured it was posted there, but I was away for the weekend, and at the very bottom of my to do list was read through a 50 page thread doing play by play of the most drawn out event in sports.

Heartbreaking enough to, say, threaten Lichts life?! Hahahahahaha. This is hilarious. Let’s play BZ Clue!

I would say whoever was wanting Derwin the most was obviously the psychopath

I say we round up all the Noles fans and stick them in Timeout cages until one confesses. Don't want to risk any of our lives here by having a homicidal critic on the loose.

I think we're all missing the underlying issue here.

This is Chris Conte's fault.

I did, but I also wasn't on the Derwin wagon. I'm glad we passed on him.

With a name like "@LuvDemNoles22" We must hunt down anyone who has a avatar or signature representing FSU that has yet to comment on this.

Could be someone who was banned from here like TommyNoleBuc? He was the guy who was doing everybody’s mom if you remember.
