Haha I called into 98.7 and talked to this guy! Very solid points. Like the knowledge of depth he has in this draft for corners. What stuck out to me is who is gonna cover Julio jones, roddy white, marques Colton, Steve smith that’s just the in house division WRs were about to face twice a year… Lets not count Percy harvins (Seahawks) calvin Johnson (lions) Crabtree (49ers) all top WRs the bucs are gonna have to matchup against. And in my opinion no rookie corner is gonna be able to handle the duties of containing these monstors. Doesn’t sound like Justin believes it either… Sure smells like revis will be suiting up with the bucs next year. 1 and a 2 in 2014… Grab revis. Just read a report wright met with Greg and mark and sure sounds like he is staying and willing to take a pay cut. So with revis and wright that lets the bucs go a different route with 13. Who knows, move back or up gather some picks seeing there shipping some away. I really would like to see them snag Sheldon Richardson and team him with McCoy for the future and really complete the d line. Or if sharrif Floyd falls past 7 and move up and snag him… New power house in the NFC south I’m
@BuccaneerBonzai – Joe was not invited to the meeting. … No, there’s no word, and don’t expect any. They’re probably talking about timing of restructuring his contract and feeling out his commitment level.
I may sound crazy here but maybe our secondary problems were more because of scheme than personnel…. AS SAID BY RONDE BARBER!!! I hope we don’t use the 13th pick on a corner! Get them in the mid rounds
You act like we went 0-16 last year and the roster is set in stone. We were a game or two away (if not a play or two) last year with a pathetic defense and we will improve between now and training camp with the draft and Revis and probably a few more low-key additions to the team.
Some of you fans are pathetic, do you really think you know more than our gm? Take the worst GM in the history of the nfl….that guy has forgot more football than most of you dumb fans will ever know, sheesh you give bucnation a bad rep.
Webb and Alford are well under 6′ tall, roughly the same height as Tyrann Mathieu. Pawlaski stated Tyrann was too small at the same height and 175… he measured in officially at the combine at 186, and he stated Julio Jones was 6’5 even though he officially measured in at 6’2 3/4…. What’s the difference between being a liar and just being factual inaccurate? One person can’t be trusted, the other person’s facts can’t be trusted. Either way, the source is unreliable.

@Santos….I guarantee…I could draft better than Matt Millen & BruceAllen/JohnGruden
Don’t forget Al Davis and Vinny Cerrato… seriously. Owners often hire guys they trust or make hires that have the gift of gab and talk their ways into jobs. There are many people that take scouting extremely seriously and would do better jobs than many of the league’s former GMs. Check out draftcountdown.com, the forums over there are loaded with guys that study the draft and prospects non-stop.
Bucs CB Eric Wright met with coach Greg Schiano and GM Mark Dominik Tuesday, and “appears likely” to agree to a restructured contract.
Wright was considered as good as gone for most of the offseason, but the tide has begun to turn. It’s apparent neither side likes what it sees on the open market. Even if Wright was forced to play for less than half of his currently scheduled $7.75 million salary, that’s more than he’d get in free agency. An official resolution could come before the end of the week.

of course many of us were hoping, if he stayed, it would be for less
I am just real about our situation: 27 million in cap space, no playoffs for a 1/2 decade, the worst pass defense in the league (narrowly missed ever in 2012).
I am a die hard Buc fan, and want nothing but the best for our team. Winning championships is as much on the players as it is the owners. “Great” owners win championships. We had great owners in 2002, but the Raheem era and”build thru the draft” movement have given us a 24-40 record under the 4th Hanson brother.
