Bucs Release A Cornerback

November 6th, 2012

No, Myron Lewis avoided the Grim Reaper today. Again.

If it is Tuesday, that means there are potential roster changes for the Bucs and one that Joe had anticipated came about today.

The Bucs cut a cornerback.

However, it’s not the cornerback Joe believed would be filing for unemployment today.

The football gods continue to smile on Myron Lewis as he once again, continues to be gainfully employed by an NFL team despite looking as comfortable in an NFL defensive backfield as a Manhattanite suddenly dropped in the middle of an Illinois cornfield. (“Where can I get a pastrami around here, huh?”)

Rather than cutting ties with Lewis, Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik released cornerback Brandon McDonald, promoting cornerback LeQuan Lewis from the practice squad.

Feel free to share your thoughts on this transaction, and how Myron Lewis has more NFL lives than a cat.

    myron lewis can’t cover a hole . Why is he still here ?, I get tired of only seeing the back of his jersey as another receiver runs by him for a TD .

    Releasing Lewis would be Dominik admiting he mad a bad selection. GM’s normally give their guys chance after chance hoping to be proven right. Lewis won’t be cut until the off season.

    I agree that GM’s don’t like to admit mistakes, but our GM has had no problem doing it. He shipped out Brian Price and Kellen Winslow (essentially a 2nd round pick with the trade). I have no idea how Lewis survives, but I don’t think it’s because Dominik is afraid to admit a mistake. Besides, just because he doesn’t admit to it doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t already know it was a mistake.

    Dom’s ego is the only explanation. Lewis can’t even be spun as promising. He’s horrible.

    McDonald had a nagging injury, he got cut because the training staff said “look Dom this isn’t going to be better anytime soon.”

    Dom said,”this guy is not good enough to keep around” and voila he got released.

    Lewis is still there because he can play at 100%, it might be worse then McDonald’s 75% but that’s his call to make.
