Dominik Flushes Two Sixth-RoundersSeptember 6th, 2010
Today the Bucs cut wide receiver Reggie Brown, who was acquired for a 2011 sixth-round pick, and punter Brent Bowden, this year’s sixth-round selection.
Publicly, the Bucs had high hopes for Bowden, who was pretty good overall in Bucs camp, but he dropped some big-time clunkers in the preseason and didn’t seem to have a ton of leg strength.
Australian rules football transfer rookie Chris Bryan impressed with the Packers but didn’t get the job and was cut by Green Bay before the Bucs snagged him today.
Of course, Brown, presumably was brought to Tampa to be a veteran presence as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.
Joe respects Mark Dominik for not being afraid to pull the trigger on moves he thinks are in the Bucs’ best interest (within the no expensive free agents plan), even if it means admitting failure on a couple of acquisitions.
But in a deep draft like this year’s, and the Bucs building through the draft, the Bowden pick is a major miss.
