Bucs Got Ripped Off

April 1st, 2009

SI.com columnist and NBC NFL analyst Peter King this morning on Sirius NFL Radio’s “The Opening Drive” reinforced a premise THE PESSIMIST had about the Bucs acquiring Sgt. Winslow.

King, who is co-hosting this morning with Bob Papa and Randy Cross, fielded a call from a Browns fan that was critical of the Browns for trading Sgt. Winslow. King quickly set the caller straight.

“That was not a negative move by the Browns, that was a positive move. It was a tremendous deal. When you can get a [second round pick] and a [fifth round pick] for a guy who I will be surprised will have two more healthy years… [Sgt. Winslow] is on his last legs physically so if you can get a two and a five you are doing well.

“Winslow was a constant distraction. That was a good trade, not a negative trade.”

    King is a D-Bag. King bangs on the Buc’s alot. If the Giants, Jets, Cowboys or Dolphins made this move. King would be riding there jocks. Its all about his friendships and big markets with King.
