Dominik, Schiano Don't Think There's A Problem

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tackle Donald Penns weight became a matter of interest on Memorial Day with a report alleging hes frustrated the team by failing to meet most of the weight clauses in his contract.

Penn strongly refuted the report via Twitter and did so again on Wednesday after the teams practice. He said he regretted reacting on Twitter to what he termed a stupid little report and that hes gotten praise from coach Greg Schiano and General Manager Mark Dominik about keeping his weight in line so he doesnt know where the report originated because he doesnt think it started with the team.

Dominik and Schiano both said that there are no problems with Penns weight. Dominik said Penn is right on par with what the team hoped and that anything else has kind of been exaggerated. Schiano admitted the team keeps an eye on Penns weight, but that Penn has done everything hes asked to do by the team. That should pretty much settle things on the Penn weight front for the time being.
