Scott Caught Bucs’ Eye In 2012 PracticeAugust 27th, 2013
The Bucs’ new sackmaster, veteran Trevor Scott, was a guy that impressed the Bucs during 2012 joint practices sessions between the Bucs and Patriots in Tampa. That was the word from Ronde Barber during the Bucs-Dolphins broadcast Saturday.
Scott proceeded to be an effective backup defensive end in New England, finishing with three sacks last season.
Scott entered free agency this season, but the Bucs didn’t bite. Why not?
Joe doesn’t know the answer. Adrian Clayborn was still in the middle of knee rehab in March, and Michael Bennett had left the building, and many folks, but not rockstar general manager Mark Dominik, were hoping the Bucs would go after a veteran pass rusher.
Regardless, the Bucs have Scott now. Only a Buccaneer for a week, Scott has managed to inject a little hope into the prospect of the Bucs having an average pass rush this season.
