Micheal Spurlock Making A CaseJuly 18th, 2010
Stephen Holder, of the St. Pete Times, also felt compelled to write about the Bucs relying on an inexperienced and underachieving receiving corps coupled with a 22-year-old quarterback.
Joe’s agonized about that situation for weeks, as Joe wrote yesterday.
Even a veteran afterthought such as Reggie Brown impressed coaches with his work ethic and precise route-running. Meanwhile, Micheal Spurlock did his best to convince the staff that he is more than a return specialist, and he made a pretty convincing argument. Second-round pick Arrelious Benn had his moments, too.
Spurlock is an interesting option for the Bucs.
Joe wonders whether Clifton Smith just had bad luck with his two serious concussions last season or does he now have a fragile head?
Sammie Stroughter, who had a return for touchdown last year, seems to be a definite starter at wide receiver and the Bucs might not want him to be their No. 2 return man.
Spurlock might be a wise choice for a roster spot — and inexpensive – but there’s no way he’s on the team if blocking icon Michael Clayton, and his $3 million+ guaranteed sticks around.
