Mark Dominik Speaks

October 18th, 2009

Bucs general manager Mark Dominik spoke with the hillbilly with a bad thesaurus who constantly interrupts his interview subjects prior to the game on the Bucs radio network.

Dominik, when the hillbilly wasn’t butting in, talked about how important it is for Jeff Faine to return to the lineup and the trade of Gaines Adams to Chicago.

“This is about as healthy as we have been since the start of the season,” Dominik said. “I think a lot of fans are starting to understand how important that center position is for calling [blocking assignments] and setting up our protection.”

Take that Sean Mayhem!

On Gaines Adams, Dominik confirmed Jay Glazer’s report that he was in discussions with a number of other teams to unload the bust of a defensive end.

“As a general manager, it is important to stay in contact with all the clubs. For me, it is important to know what is going on and what is being shopped. It should not come as a surprise that Braylon Edwards would be traded if you are on top of things. [By keeping in contact] you get a feel for what [other teams] are looking for. I talked to a few of them. [Bears general manager Jerry Angelo] hired me [with the Bucs]. We talked through it.

“It’s important for us as an organization to improve for 2010 and beyond. I have a great deal of respect for Rod Marinelli and maybe he can help Gaines.”
