Various Free Agents Now Up For GrabsMarch 5th, 2012
With the deadline for tagging players with a franchise tag now come and gone (the deadline was 4 p.m. today), there are now some players that Bucs fans have keen interest in available for shopping.
First, Kansas City franchised wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. That means that coveted cornerback Brandon Carr is free to barter with other teams when the free agency bell rings on March 13. The Bucs are in dire need of secondary help.
Speaking of secondary help, Tennessee slapped the franchise tag on safety Michael Griffin, which means Courtland Finnegan is hanging out there for someone to pick.
Farther west in San Diego, no player was tagged, thus, wide receiver Vincent Jackson is up for grabs and the Bucs certainly could use a No. 1 wide receiver.
(Oh, and the Bucs hit kicker Connor Barth with the franchise tag.)
Additionally, if Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik is so inclined, Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace can be had for the No. 5 overall pick.
OK Bucs fans, ready, set… go!
