Four-Year Deal For ZuttahMarch 5th, 2012
The Bucs made Zuttah’s new deal official today, locking up the guy who can play any position on the offensive line and has proven to be a legitimate starter at guard and center. No numbers have surfaced online as of yet.
Joe suspects Zuttah was paid mid-level starter money, handsomely in the neighborhood of $10 million guaranteed and $4.5 million per season. Otherwise why would Zuttah sign before hitting the market?
Young guys with Zuttah’s versatility, ability and character are not a dime a dozen. Jeremy Trueblood, of all people, signed a two-year $10 million deal after the lockout.
Now go get Carl Nicks, move Zuttah to center, and find a young right tackle in this O-linemen deep draft to push Trueblood and eventually replace him.
