Among the most intriguing players in camp this year for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is running back Jeff Demps.
Demps, who attended the University of Florida and is the only Florida Gator athlete to have won national championships in two sports with his 2009 BCS National Championship in football and multiple indoor and outdoor track titles, is also an Olympic silver medalist. At the 2012 London Olympics, Demps was a member of the U.S. Olympic 4×100 meter relay team.
He signed with the Patriots as a free agent following the Olympics but was subsequently placed on injured reserve and missed the entire 2012 season.
He was traded to the Bucs in 2013 for running back LaGarrette Blount, but admittedly his mind was still on track and field. At least it was until he arrived at One Buc Place. That’s all changed now for the Groveland, Fla., native who is in his first full training camp since his senior year at Florida in 2011.Read more... Join the Conversation...
