Hurricane Irma forced the postponement of what was supposed to be the regular-season opener for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. 

Defensive end Robert Ayers is anxious to get back to doing what he does best. 

"Man, I ain't worried about no rust," Ayers told reporters Thursday, per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. "I'm worried about the first person I get to lay my hands on." 

The 32-year-old went on to explain he's "looking forward to setting the tone."

Best of luck to the Chicago Bears, who have to travel south to face Ayers and the Bucs on Sunday.
