“Two Obvious Targets:” Bennett And MillerFebruary 14th, 2013
ESPN NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas sat down with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620, to talk all things Bucs and more Tuesday.
Yasinskas was clear the Bucs’ top priorities in free agency should be Michael Bennett and Roy Miller, “two obvious targets” to build on the success of the Bucs’ revived D-line last season.
Yasinskas said letting Bennett test the free-agent waters is very “dangerous” and the Bucs would be wise to pay him the big, roughly $8 million-a-year deal he’ll command.
Bennett played a whopping 84 percent of snaps last season, per ESPN and Yasinskas, a stunning figure among defensive ends.
Joe can’t argue the value of Bennett and Miller. The Bucs can’t afford to be play games by swapping defensive linemen, plus they can afford both comfortably.
Yasinskas also lobbied hard for free agent tight end Martellus Bennett to join his brother on the Bucs.
