Looking at Tampa Bay's free agents

 February, 11, 2013

 
By Pat Yasinskas | ESPN.com

 
Lets finish our look at the potential NFC South free agents with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
 
Safety Ronde Barber, tight end Dallas Clark, defensive end Michael Bennett, cornerback E.J. Biggers, long-snapper Andrew Economos, linebacker Geno Hayes, defensive tackle Roy Miller, receiver/return man Roscoe Parrish, receiver Sammie Stroughter and tackle Jeremy Trueblood can become unrestricted free agents. Running back LeGarrette Blount, linebacker Jacob Cutrera, defensive tackle Corvey Irvin and defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim can become restricted free agents.
 
The good news is the Bucs have enough salary-cap room to bring back any of their own free agents that they want and there likely are several they want to keep.
 
Lets start with Barber. He switched from cornerback to safety last season and continued to play at a relatively high level. The common assumption is that the Bucs want Barber back for another season. But its unknown at this point if Barber wants to continue playing. If he decides to retire, he needs to let the Bucs know in the next few weeks so they can begin moving in a different direction.
 
Bennett might be the key player on Tampa Bays list of free agents. In his fourth season, Bennett emerged as a decent pass-rusher (nine sacks), despite not having the injured Adrian Clayborn opposite him for most of the season. Tampa Bay has the nucleus for what could become a very good defensive line and that means it is important to re-sign Bennett and Miller.
 
Clark came in as a free agent last season and gave the team some help at tight end. But he wasnt the player he was in his prime in Indianapolis and I could see the Bucs looking to bring in another tight end.
 
Although the Bucs are expected to overhaul the cornerback position, Biggers is one guy they may keep. In an ideal world, Biggers isnt a guy the Bucs want in a starting role. But he can be decent as a third or fourth cornerback.
 
Stroughter and Trueblood are underachievers who are likely to walk as free agents.

Biggers would be best kept for nickle packages and for relief duties.

Still, he and the rest of the corners are expendable.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Biggers stinks.  Keeping him is a waste, as he is not that good as a nickel corner, and he doesn't play STs (worth a damn).  If you want to foster a bunch of incapable athletes, this is the guy you want to keep.

I would say Gorror.

At least Gorrer can make a play on the ball.  He will drop the crap out of a ball, but at least he is capable of swiveling his neck to look for the pass coming his waaaaaaay...

Keep Biggers and Leonard and add a couple free agent CB's.  And draft one.
