Son Of Bob All But Out The Door

April 29th, 2009

In a story that even a guy walking around with a white cane could see coming, Son of Bob’s tenure with the Bucs is all but finished. It’s not a matter of if, but when.

As Joe first noted just moments after the Bucs selected bust-in-waiting Josh Freeman, Son of Bob is clearly the odd man out at quarterback, if for no other reason than the $2.1 million  salary due him for making the 2009 roster and $4.2 million he made last year.

In the few days since the draft, Joe had heard whispers from trusted sources this would happen but Joe decided to go public when he read Michael Lombardi of the claim he had heard the same thing.

Any day now, back-up QB Brian Griese will either be traded or waived as the Bucs cut down on the number of players at that position.

Who the hell would trade for Son of Bob, Chucky’s not working for anyone?

For Joe, Lombardi’s post was confirmation.

Given the fact Son of Bob has not been seen at One Buc Palace since the end of the 2008 season, and that the Bucs then both signed Byron Leftwich and drafted Freeman in recent weeks, it stood to reason Son of Bob was gone.

Bucs general manager Mark Dominik dropped a veiled hint yesterday during an interview with the dean of Tampa Bay sports radio, “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig on WDAE-AM
