    Hey Joe, Do you think the Bucs may try to trade for Cameron Erving now that Clevend signed JC from the Pack? I think JW would be all in on this one as well!! Go Bucs

  4. bucsfaninchina Says:

    @Billy I was thinking the same thing. Thing to remember is he can play guard, center, and either tackle spot. Swiss army knife of a man

  5. Killian Says:

    Why Baker over CC?

  6. '74 Bucs Fan Says:

    Let’s do this thing!! Come on Desean and Baker, and several more!

  7. Buc2015 Says:

    Killian — less than half the cost, and much more than half of the production

  8. Defense Rules Says:

    Keep ’em coming Joe. Lots of folks reporting that Desean Jackson is a done deal for the Bucs … barring any last minute breakdowns … but like you said, ‘The Bell Has Rung’. Time to git ‘er done Jason. Go Bucs!

  9. Jeagan1999 Says:

    Desean 3 yrs $35m!

  10. Killian Says:

    I’ll take it. They signed him 3 year $6 million per.

  11. "Ice Man" Bob Gilbert Says:

    Already happy! Jackson will help if he stays healthy and Baker is a GREAT pickup

  12. Buc2015 Says:

    Alshon to the Eagles, 1 year $14M per Rapaport

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Party like it’s 1999.

  14. Joeypoppems Says:

    Love the Chris Baker signing and the D-Jax contract isn’t too bad. Off to a good start imo. Safety position is the biggest concern to me right now

    The world is a vampire……….. sent to drain

    Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames
    And what do I get, for my pain?
    Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game

    Even though I know – I suppose I’ll show
    All my cool and cold – like old job

    Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage
    Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage

    Smashing Pumpkins, nice 87 …… Terrelle Pryor reportedly visiting the Redskins, that would make sense given their losses

  17. Jonzey Says:

    Now we need to get Jefferson or Wilcox

  18. MarineBucsFan Says:

    I am so excited right now!!!

    Let’s add a center and safety then we ready for the draft. Being greedy I would add corner and offensive tackle. But definitely center and safety! Go Bucs

  19. BucsFanForever Says:

    Has anyone heard anything on the prospect of J.J. Wilcox (Safety) in the stream of Free Agency Rumors ?? We need depth here badly and J.J. could be our next starter …

  20. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    When you said check here for updates, I thought you meant in this thread, lol.

    So, as I predicted, 1 big name, and the rest mid-level.

    Baker probably will not even start this year (Still have Clinton). He can play both DE and DT, so I expect him to be flexible depth, not a starter.

    “Has anyone heard anything on the prospect of J.J. Wilcox (Safety)…”

    Wilcox is a horrible player, and should only be considered depth. Bradley needs to be resigned, as he is twice as good. Give the guy some cash.

  22. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Bonzai what you sniffin bro??? This dude the starter over Cmac easy man.

  23. Nole on Sat.-Bucc on Sun. Says:

    Bet sum if he aint startin day 1..

  24. Mike Johnson Says:

    Bonzai..lay off the pipe bro!! Baker will not start? You kiddin me? You’d better watch some film. Baker is an underestimated aquisition. He will be a Beast for us.
    He may even be a better catch than DeShaun. Zhats right..I said it!!
