What a great tool in recruiting Free Agents? It's so impressive, players are afraid to even come for a visit. They're intimidated. I hope Clements and Steinbach blowout some knees!!! Bastards. I'm totally confused as to how the Browns just snatch up these O-linemen on day 1 of FA???? Bentley, Schaffer now Steinbach. If they draft Joe Thomas I may have to piss on city hall next time I'm in Cleveland.

You don't have to visit to get an idea of what a team will pay you. The Bucs probably told his agent they weren't willing to pay that much, so he didn't even bother to visit.

Edit: And no matter how great your facility is, money will always be the most important thing.

I think it is clear the Bucs strategy has shifted to a wait and see approach after all those players were franchised.

Yeah, I can't believe that players signed with teams without visiting the Bucs or any of their other options available.

There are teams that are willing to spend mega bucks cuz they are close to a title

There are teams that are willing to spend mega bucks cuz they suck so bad they need to just win a few

Both those types are due for hell in 2-3 years.

Then there are team that just got out of hell and are going to be patient and build prudently.  Don't kid yourselves, if we REALLY wanted any of the guys that got signed today, we'd have them.  We just wouldn't pay the price.

More than anything it indicates a long term approach.  With each minute we don't grab a megabuck FA I get more convinced that 07 isn't Jon's "contract year"....

I don't think thats really it. I just think they didn't want to blow their whole salary structure out of the water to pay Clements or Steinbach.   There are 32 teams out there and you can count the really good free agents on one hand.   Its too bad the Bucs couldn't hang, but neither could a lot of other teams who also had plenty of cap space.

I don't care what the Browns do.. The Browns will be bad next year, and won't make the playoffs and they will be lose thier division..)Cincy,Baltimore,Pittsburgh) The 49ers will make the playoffs though..
