There’s A Stench Coming From One Buc Palace

April 8th, 2009

It wasn’t just Joe who freaked out Monday when he learned of the obscene amount of cash Bucs general manager threw at Drew Rosenhaus and his client, Sgt. Winslow. So too did Jason McIntyre.

The founder, editor and babysitter of one of Joe’s favorite blogs, a blog Joe also writes for from time to time,, was floored when he learned of Sgt. Winslow’s deal. In fact, Mr. TheBigLead has dire predictions for the Bucs.

Forty-four games into his checkered pro career, Kellen Winslow Jr. is now the richest tight-end in NFL history. Twenty million guaranteed for a prickly-yet-talented guy who will be 26 at season’s start? Hmmm. Hope he doesn’t mind rebuilding. New coach, new faces on defense, and most pressing, no new QB, yet. Smells like five wins.

Kansas State’s Josh Freeman, anyone?

Joe doesn’t know if the Bucs will only win five games this season, but Joe is sure of one thing: Unless the Bucs shore up that defensive front, there’s going to be a helluva lot of $8 beers sold to not so many people.

    I read on another site, espn or rotoworld, that tampa bays has some big injury clauses in the first three or four years of the contract. I think it’s a good deal if he can stay heathy, if not i wonder how well tampa covered their butts.
