Connor Barth May Get TaggedFebruary 25th, 2012
Bucs fans have been acting like youngsters armed with a wish list for Santa at Christmastime after Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik said the Bucs will go shopping with their
Christmas Club free agent cash.
While fans have been celebrating, it’s been easy to forget the Bucs had players of their own that will be free agents.
One is Jeremy Zuttah, the Bucs versatile offensive lineman. It appears, however, both the Bucs and Zuttah are close to signing a deal as both sides from to remain status quo.
Another free agent is kicker Connor Barth. And Dominik explained to Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune that Barth will not get away from the Bucs, so Cummings Twittered today.
@RCummingsTrib: Bucs GM Mark Dominik says PK Connor Barth will not be an unrestricted free agent. Says he’ll either re-sign him or tag him before Mar. 13.
Well, we all know how much Dominik loves kickers and punters. So for the first time Joe can recall on a lazy Saturday afternoon, a Bucs kicker will be slapped with a franchise tag.
