We couldn't offer the dude $13-14? He was rumored to be $20M, and he's only $12M and we didn't even try?

He went for two Quincy Blacks! I don't understand.

If the number is that low do you A) really think we made an offer or B) think maybe he just didn't want to come here?

Aso > Joseph, Black, Trueblood

Sad that the Bucs won games without these three stooges last year, but were forced to "re-sign" these rejects when no other team were interested in them.

The Bucs never made a play, that's how it was reported for days. Come on.

There's no indication whatsoever that we made an offer. None.

Which, considering the size of his contract, is absolutely ridiculous. This team is great in the draft but they ****ing SUCK at free agency.

There's also no question that he took less money to play for the Eagles.

John Galt?

It could be both. Dom could have called him/his agent and was told "sorry, looking at 5 teams and you're not one of them" so no point in making an offer.

Ya, that sounds like a great agent JG?, eliminate the team with the most cap space. He obviously went with the money, if he didn't he would have went to the Jets.

I'm not mad about this. I'm mad that we just paid Elbert Mack.

$12M year w/$25M guaranteed?

This FO/ownership is a f'ing joke when it comes to signing FAs. Seriously, the Bucs didn't wanna offer that to the best or 2nd best CB in the NFL? DISGUSTING

Anyone else think that Jerry Jones is currently wrecking a room in his shuttle hangar in frustration?

That being said, the Bucs are an outside shot to make the playoffs (with or without Nnamdi) the Eagles were a player or 2 away from going all the way. If you look at it from his point of view do you go to a team that can win it all now or next year or join a team that maybe might go all the way in 3 or 4 years time? If I were in his position I'd have taken the win it now option as time is against him.
