Bucs Really Want To Keep Michael BennettMarch 7th, 2012
If anything, the Giants have proven to develop kryptonite for pass-happy teams, which is pretty much what the NFL is these days.
Stockpile defensive linemen.
So with a former Giants defensive coordinator now on Greg Schiano’s staff, it appears that formula is being copied by Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.
Tampa Bay Times reporter Stephen Holder, by way of Twitter, learned from restricted free agent defensive end Michael Bennett just how much the Bucs covet his services.
@HolderStephen: Bucs DE Michael Bennett says team placed a first rd restricted free agent tender on him.
First round pick? Joe thinks it is safe to assume Bennett will be with the Bucs when OTAs begin this spring.
There is no one in their right mind short of Danny Snyder who will cough up a first round pick for Bennett. Michael Wallace, sure. But Bennett?
