Falcons Cut Veteran Stars; Are Bucs Considering?March 1st, 2013
The Falcons waved goodbye to John Abraham, Michael Turner and cornerback Dunta Robinson today, which isn’t exactly Bucs news, but it does impact their division rival and Bucs fans should take note.
One could make a case that the Bucs could use all three of these guys on their roster.
Obviously, Robinson would fill a huge need at cornerback. Abraham, who is hoping to rack up at least one more great season to help lock up a Hall of Fame entry, would be a sweet addition as a versatile pass-rush specialist. He’ll also come cheaper than Michael Bennett, which might intrigue the Bucs if they want Da’Quan Bowers to get more snaps then he would if Bennett is re-signed.
Michael Turner, well, Joe’s not lobbying for him. But if the Bucs want to upgrade their backup running back position and have a true short-yardage back, Turner would be perfect.
