Is Wrong, Bucs Did Not Sign Lofton

March 13th, 2012

Turns out was wrong. Read last paragraph.

Joe is going to preface this upfront: Joe has not been able to confirm this.

But in a free agent tracker on, it lists that Dixie Chicks middle linebacker Curtis Lofton has signed with the Bucs.

Again things are flying fast and furious and Joe has to tend to believe this only because it is (Sports Illustrated) and a publication of such renown would not pump out such pap if it was untrue.

Joe can only hope this is true. It’s a win-win: stealing a starter from a division foe and getting a starting middle linebacker.

UPDATE:  The tracker was corrected and Lofton is still free; unsigned. Below is the incriminating evidence from before.

    Stroud is the only person that is downplaying the signing. Multiple other sources report that the Bucs signed Lofton.
