BUCS NOT PURSUING GRANT, YET

Although the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have brought in franchise-tagged defensive end Charles Grant for a visit, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Bucs will make no play in the short term for the current Saint.

A league source tells us that the Buccaneers were simply getting acquainted with Grant, since he's likely to be on the open market in either 2008 or 2009.

Another possible motive?  Since Grant clearly is unhappy with the Saints for restricting his movement, the Bucs might have been looking to pick up some insights as to the team's Xs and Os in preparation for the 2007 season.

If that's the case, it would be an intriguing twist on a not-so-uncommon game that teams play with each other during the season, when players discarded by one squad are sometimes snatched up by a division rival who is less interested in the guy's body than his brain.

If the Bucs had signed Grant to an offer sheet, the Saints would have received two first-round pick from Tampa if they had elected not to match.  With Tampa holding the No. 4 overall pick in a draft year featuring four guys who in any other year could be the clear-cut number 1 overall selection, there's no way that the Bucs would give up that pick for Grant.
