Will Allen Has Raheem In His Corner

September 2nd, 2009

Despite the fact that linebacker strong safety Jermaine Phillips has officially returned to his roots, don’t look for him to be the Bucs starting strong safety, so writes Dan Parr of ProFootballWeekly.com.

Parr writes that Raheem the Dream is solidly in the corner of Will Allen, which may be why Raheem the Dream was so devout in his effort to transform Phillips, 30, into a linebacker.

Morris has a decision to make regarding how to shuffle personnel to make up for Jackson’s absence, but no options are ideal. We hear the team’s first choice is likely to promote special-teams captain Will Allen, who hasn’t made a start since Jackson was drafted, into the starting lineup. Word is Morris is a big supporter of Allen, but the sixth-year veteran will need to show he can play tough vs. the run, which has been a weakness of his.

Parr also goes on to say that the linebackers have played so well, that Raheem the Dream relented, allowing Phillips to return to linebacker strong safety.

Joe just knew this was a bad move from the word “go.”
