How big of a need is Mario?

To me, he is the ultimate prize in this years FA. He legitimizes an absolutely putrid front four pass rush. He makes life easier for GMac and Price. He makes the Bucs defense legit up front. Bucs need to pull out all the stops and get Mario In Tampa. 👊

Duh, of course. But how hard do you think Dom and Schiano want him?  If they trend the way I see the Glazers do, every few years they like to make one player the highest paid whilst neglecting every other need. So is this the season the Glazers see the need to put butts in seats, improve the anemic pass rush and once and for all reward Mario with a big contract like he deserves. Bucs need this cat. He is bonafide.

If getting Mario Williams meant not bidding and getting two guys like Finnegan/Lofton/Jackson/Carr and a few others I would be upset. Now if we got him but, we also bid and got two of the mentioned which we could, then I'd be happy.
I don't think he's leaving Houston, and if by some chance he does I don't think it will be here.
I definitely understand the absolute force our Defense line could become because of him though. He is an insane player.

It would be nice if Mario Williams could play Middle Line backer

Clayborn and Bowers combined for 9 sacks last year.

Williams gets that, usually more, by himself.

Clayborn and Williams at the ends. Bowers and Bennett rotating. 3rd downs with Clayborn/McCoy/Williams/Bowers..


There is no real reason to not sign him, imo.

We were still at the bottom of the league in sacks last year

Developing defensive linemen takes time. You guys are complaining about lack of sacks last year...all of those DEs were in the first year of significant snaps. Give them a chance to actually prove they can't do it before you replace them. Mario Williams is an athletic freak, but none of those guys will reach their full potential on the bench.

There are plenty of snaps for three quality pass rushing DEs. Williams would make this team better, but like has been stated, if it is between Williams and the possibility of signing two other significant upgrades, the better value may be to go with the two player approach. Hard to say.

And with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville.

Williams gets that, usually more, by himself.

Not his rookie year . Williams had 4.5 sacks his rookie year.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

If you can sign a guy of Mario Williams' talents, you do it.  Whether you feel his position is of need or not, he's worth making a phone call to see if there is any interest from his camp.

Is this post real life?

What's the problem ?? You are comparing Mario's production to that of two rookies , so it makes sense to look at what Mario did HIS rookie season....worse than Clayborn...
