Many Tampa Bay Buccaneers players engage in social media websites, such as Twitter or Instagram, and offer their fans a glimpse into their private lives. Whether it is cornerback Johnthan Banks going hunting back home in the countryside of Mississippi on New Year’s Day, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy thanking his lovely wife with pics of his new video game console or the swag he got for Christmas or videos from the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, or tight end Tim Wright posting pics of his touchdowns as he soaks in his rookie season, the Internet provides fans with an interesting look at how the players spend their free time and what’s important to them outside of football.

The Buccaneers front office has accounts set up to follow each player on social media and keep tabs of the team’s financial investments. This is not uncommon at all, as likely every team has an individual within their organization assigned to monitor the players’ activities on social media.

One particular Buccaneer’s postings on Instagram really concerned the team during this past football season, and nearly cost him his roster spot. Fresh off signing a six-year, $40.25-million contract extension in the summer of 2013, wide receiver Mike Williams was placed on injured reserve in Week 9 with a torn hamstring. Since his injury, Williams has documented his partying and his new career as a rapper – complete with original recorded songs – for all the public to see on his Instagram account.

Players can party all they want to – as long as it doesn’t get them in trouble with the law or interfere with their job. But the team grew so concerned with Williams’ behavior over the last two months of the season that it was deemed immature and unprofessional as he accumulated several fines totaling more than $200,000 for either being late to mandatory team meetings or missing those meetings and scheduled rehab days for his torn hamstring during the 2013 season.
