Buccaneers | Unsure where June will play
Sun, 8 Apr 2007 09:20:55 -0700

Rick Stroud, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Cato June will be a starter for the team, but it is not known where he will play. LB Derrick Brooks is a 10-time Pro Bowl player at weakside linebacker. June is not stout enough to play middle linebacker and LB Ryan Nece is currently the strongside linebacker. He will at least be on the field on passing downs. Head coach Jon Gruden said, "You know he's here for a reason. Wherever he decides to go, he's going to be a starter. He wants to make sure that's pretty well-documented and understood."

In the article from the St. Pete Times, Gruden implies that Cato June will start.  If Cato June doesn't beat out LB's Derrick Brooks and Ryan Nece, he it be an interesting experiment to try him out at saftey for a couple of pre-season games and see how he does.

Cato June did play saftey in college if you didn't already know that.

I don't see us moving him back to S.  I still believe he's got the SLB spot locked up as a "try out" to replace Brooks next year.   I'd also like to see Neece get a shot in the middle to backup Ruud, while also providing depth at SLB.  Winborn gets to backup DB and if June fails to impress, he'll more than likely compete with a 2008 draft pick/FA.  That should leave one spot open for ST - most likely Mallard unless we someone add someone in the draft who lights it up in camp/preseason.

Ryan Nece?  I like the guy, but he will not beat out Cato June.  I am 100% confident that our LBing core will be Brooks, Ruud/Quarles, and Cato June.

Here's a tip:

If you see "Stroud" in the byline, just stop reading.

One thing is for sure:  He will play.
