Pretty Much Forget About Tavon AustinApril 21st, 2013
For reasons Joe cannot quite comprehend, there are a number of Bucs fans who are head-over-heels in love with slot receiver Tavon Austin worse than Joe lusts over Rachel Watson.
These fans banged the drum and came up with just about every illogical reason to draft Austin, mainly because there was no logical reason for the Bucs to draft Austin.
Well, this pipedream is now all but dead.
With the Bucs’ depth on the defensive line thinner than toilet paper, with the Bucs likely looking for another cornerback, with the Bucs likely adding a linebacker to a unit with little to no depth and, more importantly, with no first round pick (for the time being), it is almost as unlikely for Austin to wind up with the Bucs as Joe is to find Rachel at his front door this evening.
The best condolences Joe offers to the Austin faction is, of course, to have a few drinks.
The remote chances the Bucs would draft a slot receiver at No. 13 went poof the moment Darrelle Revis signed his new contract with the Bucs.
