The Bucs may feel they've found somebody in Morgan; could they strike gold with another similar player in Norwood?  Could prove interesting; and remember, they cut George Johnson to sign Morgan permanently; there could be a surprise cut(Teo? or maybe even Dekoda )

No need to cut anyone. We currently only have 52 guys on the roster.

IIRC, we have been at 52 since last week after IR'ing Trueblood and Grimm.  We claimed a WR that was cut by the Steelers, but that is it.

I think that last spot is filled by activating Gaitor from IR.

I liked Norwood as a college player, but I don't think he has a spot in a NFL 4-3 defense.

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

Yeah, Norwood was a tweener. I liked him in college, but worried about him ending up like Corey Moore (ex-Va Tech star who fizzled in pros because he really wasn't the right build for a 4-3, nor fast enough for a 3-4).. Worth a look, but I don't have high hopes.

I can't imagine why we'd cut Teo (especially) flash. We aren't yanking a starter (who has played much better than I certainly expected) just to add the 53rd player on the roster.

Teo has been pretty good for us lately. Would hate to see him cut.

Im not against signing Norwood.

Still mad we didn't sign Greg Hardy in the 2010 draft. He would have been a lot better than any of the dumpster trash we have at DE for Depth.

I was just trying to understand how we could possibly fit him in; it seemed pretty hard . . . ;
