Rich Eisen: “What would you tell a team who knocks on the door maybe to you about Jameis if they’re interested in his services?”
Bruce Arians: “I’ve called a couple teams. You’re going to get one of the hardest workers you’ve ever had and a great young man. It didn’t work out for us only because Tom Brady was available and we had Teddy Bridgewater if that hadn’t of worked out. We were going full steam ahead back with Jameis. He’s a great young man and no one is going to outwork him.”
Eisen: “So you lifted the phone to call people?”
Arians: “Yes, I’ve talked to two teams."
Eisen: “What do you sense the level of interest is for him? As a starter?”
Arians: “No I think it was just to get him on your roster. It would be a great fit. One team was not interested and the other was ‘hey, thank you for calling.’" (Full Interview Above)
