07/30/12 - WR Dezmon Briscoe was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay on July 27. Briscoe led the Bucs with six touchdowns last year (on just 35 catches) but fell out of favor with Morris' replacement, Greg Schiano, when he failed to show for a voluntary minicamp in April and then failed the new coach's conditioning test on the eve of training camp.
"I want to be around my team, but the situation I had back at the house, I felt was more important," Briscoe said. "I made the mandatory (workouts). I missed a couple of voluntaries. It's tough, especially coming off the season I did have. I felt I had good security, but things happen. The (new) coaching staff pretty much hand-picked their guys. With the disciplined program they run down there and me not showing up to voluntary workouts, that made a big difference. The conditioning test, not everyone passed. It stuck out with me not passing because I wasn't there in the offseason training. They made it seem like I'm out of condition, which I'm not."
