Even though it may have appeared that the two men had issues last season, Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris says he has no bad blood with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Saturday that Lewis was angry with Tampa Bay for signing rookie wideout Dezmon Briscoe to its practice squad last September, after the Bengals released the 2010 sixth-round pick in hopes he would wind up on their practice squad. Briscoe chose the Buccaneers over the Bengals because Tampa Bay offered him the rookie minimum of about $325,000, favorable to the roughly $100,000 practice squad contract the Bengals planned to field. "That's business, this is about the community and the bigger picture," Morris said. "It's not about whether you have a disagreement on the field or whether I like him on game day. "I wanted to come in for Marvin and be supportive of him because he's always been supportive of me."
