and Dom is trying to get you signed with the Bucs. If money isn't the sole motivation what is attractive to come to this team? Given the multiple threads we have saying we need a TE, DE, etc., give good reasons why a free agent would want to come here.

The only position I see a free agent wanting to come here is DB because they may feel they have an opportunity to shine over our current players.

Thoughts.

The weather and the ability to be a starter at those positions.

Money is 90% of it. The best alternative selling point would be the facilities.

Being an NFL free agent, I'm obviously not a teenager and can get all the women I want. Women walking around half dressed means little to me. The stifling heat isn't all that appealing either. I want money, and I want a  chance to win a ring. The rest is fluff.

The Buccaneers proved last Free Agent Season that they are serious when they signed Nicks and Jackson. Agents and players will take notice of that, no doubt. This FA season is going to be very interesting. What the Bucs do with Eric Wright will determine a lot of the Pre Free Agency Strategy.

Not saying a pro player cant....but the views and women in south Florida have got to be better than MN, GB, SEA, CIN, CLE,  Buf...etc.  Im not saying its the end all, be all...but I would rather have this as a perk than cold as F&*%

Some people do actually like having seasons...

I think you sell them on this team being on the rise(see record improvement), and serious about winning(see last years FA spending).
Some players could be sold on the discipline(I am sure there are guys who actually like playing in that kind of system, guys who are a little more serious).
Hey your brother plays here and likes it(true this only applies to M. Bennett).
Sales tax, the facility and maybe free ManU tickets too.

I agree with all of these things, but not sold about the seasons part.  There's a reason that warm climate college teams are more talented.  Players in those states dont want to go where it is cold if they have the choice.  3-8 years later in life, all things being equal, I would think the same would apply.  (Although I recognize things are hardly ever equal, be it $$$ or chance to win a ring). 

I just have to believe that when FA opens in March and players visit teams and its 80 degrees in Tampa and 45 in Chicago....that it means something.

I could be totally wrong but I believe this until proven otherwise.

The downside to what you're saying is they also know how blistering hot and humid it is in Tampa during July, August and September.  They're also aware that coach isn't running a day camp down here.  It's all about the money, winning and playing.

Not if you can find someone else to sign you.  Did it ever accrue to you that Clark was out of options and that's why he came here in the first place?  I don't know that to be the case but it's just another possibility.  An old Dallas - Peyton + #5 = average at best and that's being kind.
