Mark Ingram Would Be “Value” For The Bucs?February 27th, 2011
Never short of an opinion, popcorn shoveling, oatmeal guzzling Peter King of Sports Illustrated is spouting off opinions about the Bucs again.
No, he hasn’t picked them to win two games like he did last year. Now he’s talking about the Bucs possibly snatching running back Mark Ingram in the first round of the draft, if he’s available. Good guy Scott Smith, video maven for the Buccaneers organization, caught up with King at the NFL Scouting combine.
King’s point was that the Bucs might be looking at an insurance policy at running back with an eye toward the future and Ingram would be great “value” for the Bucs at No. 20 in the first round.
Joe’s initial reaction was Greg Olson hardly needs more reasons not to give LeGarrette Blount the rock. He didn’t get it nearly enough for Joe’s taste last year. Plus, the Bucs should be able to find capable complement to Blount in later rounds, if they have the desire.
Joe’s final reaction was that King should stick to doom and gloom takes on the NFL labor situation and stop playing Bucs GM.
