Bucs And Sean Smith’s Reps TalkMarch 9th, 2013
Joe has stated this before and will type it again: if Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik pulled a Bill Walsh and drafted four cornerbacks in next month’s draft, Joe wouldn’t sleep.
Needing cornerbacks in the worst way, Dominik already has made preliminary communications with the reps of Dolphins cornerback Sean Smith, so documents Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
@RCummingsTBO: The Bucs have made contact with the agent for CB Sean Smith but there have been no substantive talks. Yet
“Yet” is the key word here. Joe has a hunch Dominik had already reached out to several agents for cornerbacks. If the Bucs sign two free agent corners and draft two corners before an OTA is held, then they will have improved dramatically over the schlap that was trotted out there last year masquerading as NFL cornerbacks.
UPDATE: Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports Twittered the Bucs are one of three teams who are likely to land Smith.
@JasonColeYahoo: Leading candidates for CB Sean Smith, as if this moment, appear to be Tampa Bay, Arizona and Pats. But things are fluid.
