Eric Page Re-Ups With Bucs

March 11th, 2014

The Bucs appeared to address their kick/punt returner issues this afternoon if Instagram is to be believed. At least, Eric Page’s Instagram account.

Per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, third-year pro Eric Page has inked a deal to remain with the Bucs.

@gregauman: Bucs WR/returner Eric Page posts on Instagram that he’s signed a 1-year contract to stay in Tampa. Was an exclusive-rights free agent.

It is a good thing the Bucs have, at worst, solidified their return game by keeping Page. He had above-average stats last season among his fellow full-time returners. Also, it effectively was Page’s rookie season, as he blew out his ACL in August 2012 with the Broncos. Page made rookie mistakes but flashed plenty of talent and is only 22 years old.

But with Dexter McCluster still (reportedly) out there and so too Devin Hester (reportedly), Joe doesn’t think the Bucs are finished shopping for another return man.

    I like Eric’s skill set and abilility… Maybe the light comes on upstairs for him and blossoms, but I don’t see that happening.

  5. biff barker Says:

    I’d like to see Paige get a look in the slot. After we sign McCluster that is.

  6. Jonny 2.3 Says:

    Who cares. Fire Schiano

  7. Daffy Buc Says:


    Talk to Mevis about taking what the Bucs can afford to offer.

  8. Macabee Says:

    I like this kid. Now top it off with McCluster and we’re good to go. Speed in Space. I could get used to hearing that!

  9. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    Schiano lives…

  10. SausageKingOfChicago Says:

    Can we get back Michael Spurlock? …. Just to hear Deckerhoff again. 🙂

    Who would be dumb enough to trade for Revis with 16 million. Shen he might be cut and on the open market and get him for less. Because no one will pay that much in fa

  12. buchead407 Says:

    We might as well keep him or we are wasting two draft picks for a.4-12 season

  13. bucrightoff Says:

    Can someone tell me why we need McCluster, especially since he won’t come cheap? We have 3 RBs, we can find a number of guys in rounds 5-7 who can run routes only out of the slot, and they’ll cost a lot less….we have Demps who is faster…what am I missing here?

  14. buchead407 Says:

    He is a wr also

  15. Biff Barker Says:

    Macabee, you’re not alone. Speed. Lot’s of it. Tedford has been calling for it. We’ll just have to wait and see.

  16. buchead407 Says:

    And very quick and pretty good speed

  17. WalkdaPlank Says:

    He’s OK with punts. But he is a bad kick returner. Fumbles, and frequently misjudges blocks and fails to make it past the 20 after bringing it out of the endzone. Bring on Dexter.

  18. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    We do not “have” demps. We have the rights to him. Track has Demps. Besides, he sucks on the field.

    And we are not going after McCluster as a RB. He would be on returns. Page is a backup plan.

  19. Mike J Says:

    He is not a good player. That’s why we signed him. Can’t wait until we sign a 35 year old injured corner. Is Ronde still able to play

  20. bucrightoff Says:

    McCluster is going to cost $5 million a year or so, possibly more. That is a ton for a guy to return kicks, especially when Page averaged only 1 less yard a PR and returns kicks (McCluster does not). Would be a luxury signing for a team nowhere close to winning anything. Unnecessary spending right there.

    Fire the Glazers

  22. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Bwahahahah-Revis Trade Possibilities might shut down twitter-Complete Social Media Madness…lol

  23. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Speed in space

  24. Couch Fan Says:

    Demarcus Ware is going to be released… Just sayin, now that is a pass rusher.

  25. Vincente Says:


  26. bucrightoff Says:

    If only we didn’t just pay $9 million a year to a guy who’s AVERAGE sacks per season is LOWER than Ware’s lowest season ever. Whoops.

  27. dee Says:

    Mccluster is off the board

  28. bwf921 Says:

    He is a Schiano man. LMAO

  29. bwf921 Says:

    I am so frustrated with these guys today. Talking about trading Revis. Letting the Titans sign McCluster, seriously ????? The kids home is largo. And we re-sign Eric Page as our returner. Nothing against him but he is not even in the same league as McCluster. I don’t have any idea what they are trying to do with all this. Hopefully they do. I don’t want to think of Revis next year like we are thinking of Bennett now. The one that got away…..

  30. Brandon Says:


    Yeah, great idea to overpay for McCluster… that dude is making $4 million a season!!! Titans seriously overpaid for a guy that will never be more than a situational/part-time player… and because he’s from Largo we should overpay him?

    Page was signed to his exclusive rights tender, probably something in the neighborhood of $750,000, none of which is guaranteed. How can one possibly think that was a bad deal?

    A Buc from last season who survived the Lovie March massacre…kudos to Mr. Page.
