Devin White kept the receipts.
Back in November during the Chiefs-Bucs regular season game — Tyreek Hill torched Tampa Bay’s secondary as he racked up seven catches for 203 yards and two touchdowns in the first quarter alone. He wasn’t finished as finished the day with 269 receiving yards while tacking on another TD.
Hill was having so much fun out there that he decided to let the few Tampa Bay fans in the crowd know about it by yelling “Help is on the way!”
You know who else remembered that moment? Devin White.
During the beatdown of the Chiefs in the Super Bowl — White returned the favor to Hill with a call on the sidelines of his own:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker is not short on confidence as he said on the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football that he believes he’s the best linebacker in football.
“I mean I respect all those guys, even the guys that’s not that much older than me. Man, right now, as in just finishing that year, man I got to put myself No. 1 and there’s not no cockiness about it. Put on the tape…
“… And I feel like teams don’t even run toss sweeps against us no more because they know I’m going to track it down. I just feel like I bring more to the game than just playmaking ability. I feel like I’m exciting to watch because of the energy and passion I play with.”
The 22-year-old linebacker finished the 2020 season with 140 tackles, nine sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
