A cryptic tweet by former Green Bay Packers safety Raven Greene before signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers caught the attention of a Packers writer with Sports Illustrated’s Packers Central.
Greene tweeted “it’s on” two days before signing with the Bucs on Wednesday. Bill Huber of Packers Central concluded that was a hint dropped by the veteran safety.

Tampa signed both Greene and recent Denver Broncos linebacker Joseph Jones in free agency on Wednesday according to Buccaneers.com’s Scott Smith. It gives added veteran depth to the Bucs defense, which saw its share of injuries in the secondary in particular last season.
Greene stepped up for the Packers in 2020 with 44 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble, and 1.5 sacks. In three seasons with the Packers after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2018, he has 56 tackles, 2.5 sacks, an interception, and two forced fumbles in his NFL career.
Jones had three tackles for the Broncos in 2020, but his most productive campaign came in 2018 when he tallied 16 tackles for the Broncos.
