DeBartolo on interest in the Bucs: 'Maybe'

If the Bucs were for sale, Eddie DeBartolo says he'd be interested.

But DeBartolo, like the Glazers, said the team is not on the market.

DeBartolo, the former 49ers owner, told Fox Sports he had a "casual dinner conversation" with Outback Steakhouse principal owners Chris Sullivan and Bob Basham about putting together a bid for the Bucs.

"Malcolm Glazer and his family are very astute business people," DeBartolo told Fox, "and all they had to say was that team wasn't for sale. And they did.

"But if something were to happen, and the Holy Ghost came down and Malcolm said, "I'd like to sell the team,' would I be interested? Maybe."
