The Bucs And Ronnie Brown?

June 28th, 2011

Maybe the Bucs want insurance at running back other than “Insurance Graham?”

Justin “The Commish” Pawlowksi, of WDAE-AM 620, looks at one guy the Bucs might consider who wouldn’t command Derrick Ward money. That would be Ronnie Brown, coming off a second-rate season in Miami.

Joe will let you click through to read what The Commish has to say about the Bucs being one of three teams that might strongly sniff Brown.

Joe will say that the end of the asinine lockout will be damn interesting. Teams likely will get a very short window to re-sign their own free agents. If blocking icon Cadillac Williams wants to play the field, then the Bucs will all but be forced to look at free-agent, third-down backs — or a solid fullback.

Graham would do fine in a third-down back/fullback role, but Joe suspects the Bucs are acutely aware that Graham’s durability is a major question mark.

No, Joe’s no Ronnie Brown fan, but he can catch the ball.

    “Blocking Icon” (your former nickname for Michael Clayton) seems like an unfair label for Cadillac…….

    The dude can still tote the pill, catches out of the backfield, and has taken on a leadership role with the team…….I don’t think it’s right to say the only thing he brings to the table is his pass blocking ability

    I agree with CBH. Cadillac has been more than a blocking icon. He does it all. When he first came to Tampa, he wasn’t much of a pass catcher, but he has improved his overall game to a point where he is actually the perfect 3rd down back because of his versatility. Sure, he doesn’t have the burst he had his rookie season, but I would keep him on the team if at all possible.

    We have finally hit a free agent that I would be more than willing to spend money on. Brown can run, catch and pass block better than Caddy. I hate to say it, but Caddy has no worth to the Buccaneers’ team other than the overrated “leadership” value.
    Carnell “Caddilac” Williams is far more valuable to the Tampa Bay community than he is the Buccaneers’ team. Which is why it will sadden me to see him go.

    Mauha Deeb – Leadership is often overrated…until it isn’t there, when suddenly it becomes priceless.
