While just about every Buccaneers fans wants Nnamdi Asomugha. Here are four other players that offer a more realistic chance of landing with the Bucs.

Brandon McDonald
Carlos Rogers
Eric Wright
Brandon Carr

Of course three of the four have only fours years experience in the NFL, so a new CBA would have to be worked out, But if it is I think Wright or Carr would be solid plan"B" options.

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

Brent Grimes (ATL)  Pick up a good young corner, and take him from a divisional foe.

They need a shut down/game changer CB, to hold up against Andre Johnson/Calvin Johnson/Marques Colston/Roddy White this year.  It's either Asomugha or Joseph.

I would honestly prefer Joseph.  I like Aso and think he is prob the best at his position but the price bidding war is going to get insane for that guy imo.

Grimes will be a priority re-signing for Atlanta IMO and was given a first round tender on 03/04/2011

but looky here....

Grimes and Black are eerily similar...   and Black is a better athlete in the quick twitch drills...

I just don't see Joseph as being all that...IIRC, the Bengals got destroyed through the air all year long.  Just spend the money and get the number 1 guy instead of settling for a cheaper alternative, at least just this once.

Nnamdi would provide a shut down corner  solution for the next 5 years, not just next year. I can't understand why so many are ok with not going after him if the front office decides to pass. I'm not looking to spend money for the sake of spending, but when you have a need (assuming that Talib is not in the long term plans of this team) and a solution to that need in a bonafide premiere corner, I am not ok with not making a play for him.
This team is growing very similar to the one from a decade ago built through the draft and growing together, but even that team made a move to sign Simeon Rice who was a key piece to putting them over the top. I think that a move like signing Asomugha can be like that Simeon Rice move. This team is growing very close to win it all in the next couple of years.

Here are the 3 guys that I keep throwing out that are UFAs regardless of CBA. Chris Carr, Carlos Rogers and Fabian Washington, they are all mid tier guys capable of pushing the young guys and starting and they all come from defenses they hae been very successful over the last 2 years.

ATL placed a HUGE bet down on their draft, we have to take the steps necessary to make sure they aren't the cream of the nfc for the foreseeable future; drafting Nnamdi would crush them now and for the next 5 years.

are we looking for a number 1?  if so, asomugha is great.  but i think his price is too high.  he would do wonders for our team on the field.

i think a midtier guy is more realistic.  especially with talib still a possibility.

I'm not one to chase down just any free agent as a fan...

But this statement above REALLY hit the nail on the head.

Well put Ramon...  Well put...

I hear CB is going to be deep in next year's draft. I'd rather wait until then rather than bring in a bling bling free agent. We got Gaiter in the draft. I expect that we will use him if need be. He looks like a very solid prospect, and I'm pretty sure Raheem really wanted to bring that kid in. He could be a steal where we drafted him. He is a big time ball hawk. He's very good at reading the QB, and he has speed, is a sound tackler, etc.

Ihen has that ever happened. . . .

I think grimes would be great to take from ATL, he's gotten a couple key takeaways from the Bucs last year and looked pretty promising overall.
