Bucs Could Buy A Team In Free Agency

February 25th, 2009

Joe is not an accountant, an economist, an NFL general manager or a stat geek. In fact, numbers bore Joe.

So Joe leaves it to others to play with figures. One such person is Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com. His calculator tells him that with the purge today — heretofore known as Black Wednesday — the Bucs have slashed over $12 million from their budget.

That means the Bucs are $67 million under the salary cap as the dawn of the 2009 free agent shopping spree nears.

Joe can hear Stu Sternberg screaming all the way from Port Charlotte.

If what Mark Dominik told Peter King is correct, and that the Bucs aren’t going to land any big-monied free agent players, Dominik could virtually buy an entire new team, sans offensive line and secondary, which the Bucs don’t need.

[UPDATE: Per Adam Schefter of NFL.com, the salary cap has been raised $3 million. That means the Bucs have roughly $70 million to play with!]
