Mark Dominik Comes Out Ahead (Again)September 3rd, 2012
Now that the dust has cleared, for the most part, on NFL teams setting their 53-man rosters, it seems that all the gnashing of teeth and slamming of beer bottles on the bar over some high profile player pink slips in recent months was quite astute by Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.
pants-on-the-ground toes-on-the-line detractor Kellen Winslow was cut loose by Seattle, Tanard “Bongs” Jackson has, again, been busted, suspended and very likely has consummated his quest to smoke himself out of millions of dollars and a promising NFL career, and today hobbled Brian Price was cut loose by the Bears.
What does this tell Joe? That Dominik knew what he was doing with a couple of malcontents and a talented player who, because of a freak injury, is pretty much physically unable to play on the NFL level.
Joe remembers both Bucs fans and NFL media types roasting Dominik (and Bucs coach Greg Schiano) after booting K2 to the curb.
Joe remembers many Bucs fans wanting to storm One Buc Palace in outage over Jackson being turned loose.
Joe even noticed a few Bucs fans angry that Price was traded to the Bears.
Now all three are unemployed. Now all three are on the threshold of the end of the NFL careers.
Who is laughing now?
