Jeff Garcia embarrassed after Bucs ask him to announce draft pick they don’t have

Former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia has been given the honor of announcing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ third-round selection at the draft this weekend, but there could be one problem — the Bucs don’t have a third-round pick.

Garcia wrote on Twitter Monday night that he is honored the Bucs asked him to present the pick.

However, the Bucs traded their third-round pick to the New York Giants as part of the Jason Pierre-Paul deal. When a local reporter pointed that out, Garcia became very salty and said he doesn’t pay attention to his former team’s draft and “could care less” who they are picking anyway.

Seemingly realizing that he came across as a jerk, Garcia apologized on Tuesday morning but admitted it was “a bit of an embarrassment” that the Bucs asked him to announce a draft pick they don’t have.

Garcia spent two seasons in Tampa and reached the Pro Bowl as a member of the team in 2007. The Bucs have already created quite the buzz over the way they plan to announce some draft picks, but they probably didn’t intend for the Garcia situation to turn into this much of a mess. If he’s still willing to announce a pick, the team can probably find one for him.
