I think he's worth a look at?

Yeah, that's exactly what we need.  More scraps tossed away by other teams.

Pointless signing.. he gives us nothing that Crowder, White, or Wilkerson already do.

There's something to be said for a player who has only missed one game in an 8yr career.

Wilkerson is coming of an ACL. Why wouldn't you go after Brown. He is a big upgrade. The Bears released him because of the money owed the next 2 years and Peppers contract. This seems like a no-brainer.

Most 4-3 teams only carry 4 active DE's. The Bucs currently have White, Crowder, and Moore under contract and are likely to pick a DE in the first 3 rounds of the draft. Whose spot does Brown take?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Brown is an NFL starter, none of the DE's on the Bucs roster would start anywhere besides here. Crowder was a PS player, Moore couldn't supplant anyone last year even with the abysmal production from the startes (not to mention trading off Gaines and Wilkerson getting hurt), white is about the only one Brown wouldn't be a clear cut upgrade over.

Brown had 43 tackles and 6 sacks last year. Stylez G had 30 tackles and 6.5 sacks. They are both the same age too. They would be great on the field together. One on each side. Brown is a HUGE upgrade from Wilkerson, Moore, or Crowder. Lets get serious. The guy has been the Bears starter for 6 years or so.

Brown wouldn't be a bad pickup as we need to have competition in TC, there is nothing to say that if we draft a DE that he won't need a year or two to begin to shine. Brown would be a solid starter who would give the younger guys someone to learn from. If all else fails you use him for 2-3 years and hope that by that time your younger DE's have come through to beat him out.

If the Bucs want to get better then there needs to be more competition for places.

Crowder is going on 25 years old and had 3.5 sacks while playing 534 snaps. That's one sack per every 153 snaps.

Alex Brown is going on 31 years old and had 6 sacks while playing 787 snaps. That's one sack per every 131 snaps.

They're not that far apart.

   It's always amusing how a young Buc player whose stats last year were ___ (fill in the blanks) is somehow perceived as maxed out, while an aging vet released by another team is assumed to be primed to repeat his gauder stats of yester-year... It's obvious there's a reason besides $$$ these teams release their vets. If they still had much of anything left the $$$ would NOT be an issue. It only becomes an issue when their PRODUCTION has declined and they're no longer worth the $$$... Kinda like Dominick has done as our GM, as a matter of fact  ::) And, usually other teams know which vets still have it and which one's are done...

I don't really think he fits a 3-4 scheme. He's a little small for a 3-4 DE and has spent too many years in a 4-3 scheme to try and convert to a OLB.
