Aqib Talib could land huge payday in 2013


Brian McIntyre - NFL.com

Around the League is taking a look at each team's salary-cap situation heading into training camp. We continue with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Adjusted Cap Number: $146.088 million

Crunching the Numbers
Around the League is taking a look at each team's salary cap situation as we approach the start of training camp:


 
Cap Room Remaining: $15.74 million


Best Bargain:

 As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' No. 1 receiver by default, Mike Williams has caught 130 passes for 1,735 yards and 14 touchdowns over his first two seasons in the NFL. A 2010 fourth-round draft pick, Williams has earned just over $1.3 million in his career thus far and is scheduled to earn $540,000 in base salary in 2012. The arrival of Vincent Jackson will move Williams to a more suitable role as a No. 2 receiver this season, a position where the 6-foot-2, 221-pounder can take advantage not going up against the other team's top cornerback.


Potential Camp Casualty:

The Buccaneers have moved away from signing bonuses, and instead are signing players to higher base salaries (often guaranteed), so players with high salaries always are candidates for release. Two such players on the Buccaneers are right tackle Jeremy Trueblood and linebacker Quincy Black. In the second season of a two-year contract, Trueblood triggered a $1 million escalator to his base salary and is scheduled to make $5.25 million, all of which could be wiped off the books. Black is due $5.5 million in base salary and would leave a cap imprint of just $250,000 from a workout bonus.
The problem with releasing Trueblood or Black lies in whom would replace them? Trueblood played in over 92 percent of the Buccaneers' snaps last season and is solid in pass protection. The Buccaneers do not have much (or any) depth at the tackle position. Black was largely a two-down player in 2011, but with Geno Hayes moving on in free agency, Black is the team's most experienced linebacker. With plenty of cap space, the Buccaneers unlikely are to be motivated by cap relief when shaping their 53-man roster this summer.


Contract Issue Looming In 2013:

 Cornerback Aqib Talib is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. Off-field issues have had his future in Tampa in doubt, but he won't face charges in Texas. Talib has a clean slate with first-year head coach Greg Schiano. When not getting involved in off-field issues, or injured, Talib is an excellent cover cornerback with the ability to be a perennial Pro Bowl player. A healthy, law-abiding season could get the Buccaneers to pony up the dough or place the franchise tag (projected value of $10.784 million) on him next offseason.
Defensive end Michael Bennett received a "First Round" restricted free-agent tender from the Buccaneers and will earn $2.742 million in base salary in 2012. Da'Quan Bowers' torn Achilles will give Bennett another opportunity to cement his status as a starter, either for the Bucs or elsewhere, and he should do quite well for himself on the free agent market if he's allowed to test it.

Black's contract is guaranteed this year and there is no depth to speak of at tackle, so that entire paragraph is pretty much a waste of ink.

Truebloods 2012 contract year is guaranteed.  Part of his deal with giving up the million dollar bonus.  We ain't eating 4 mil nor blacks 5 mil.  Didn't this writer do any research.

If there was a viable replacement and depth at tackle...and both of their contracts weren't guaranteed....then cool...but they will be on this team in '12.....

but...these dudes will be gone after this season. No doubt.

It's clear to anyone who has watched this team the last few years that both of these players are the worst starters on their side of the ball.

WEll let's see in addition Talib can be a "perennial Pro Bowl player" really? He's shown no propensity to do that yet...as for Bennett if he doesn't light up a lot more than 4 sacks he's not getting a big payday at DE.

He's not only wrong about camp casualities, he's wrong about paydays.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

I would guess you have a lot of experience in that area.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

With just a little research the writer could have found out that BOTH QBlack and TBlood have GUARANTEED CONTRACTS for 2012.
So that makes the post unreadable, IMO.

lol @ who would replace Black. We could put a fan from the seats out there and he/she would just as good of a job.

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