They put up a strong defensive display to completely nullify the Chiefs’ offense featuring big names like Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce. Bucs linebacker Devin White was one of the standout performers in Super Bowl LV.

Some critics and fans on social media even opined that White should win Super Bowl MVP for his display. But that honor was eventually bestowed upon veteran QB Tom Brady, who registered a 7th Championship win. Regardless, White had an outstanding game on February 7th, and here’s what he had to say to the Chiefs.

Devin White does not hold back in his criticism of the Kansas City Chiefs

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker recently featured on FOX Sports’ Undisputed: Skip and Shannon. While in conversation with NFL Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, the Bucs defensive superstar did not hold back in his criticism of the Super Bowl LIV winners.

He said, “That’s another thing like that we knew going in, we knew that there was gonna be a bit cocky, which they have every right to be. They was the #1 offense in the entire National Football League.

“They did us a favor, they played right into our hands. We went like, ‘Hey, we’re gonna we’re gonna shut them down’… So at the end of the day, they shouldn’t even talk about not having their offensive tackles. When they didn’t even help them, so that’s their own fault,” White said on the show.

White is currently on a 4-year, $29.32 million contract with the Buccaneers signed in 2019. He has another year left on this deal and will hope to defend their title heading into the 2021 NFL season.
