in Tampa Bay at 7 p.m. Friday evening to talk with the Buccaneers. so in around 45 minutes he should be touching down at Tampa International Airport. With news on a signing if a deal can be worked out sometime later tonight

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

The deal is done. There's nothing to work out. He's here to sign the paperwork.

Isn't Gilmore the same type of blocking TE as Becht, which is what some said was a problem with teams focusing on Smith?

Yeah, he led the league in drops, dropping seven and catching only 20 last year. He's not a particularly disciplined route runner. In four seasons, his catches have been dwarfed by Michael Clayton's. He's got speed, but poor hands. He will frustrate the heck out of our fans and the coach.

If Bucs fans are unhappy with Clayton, they'll be very unhappy with Henderson.

Gilmore sucks.  He can chip a little though.  Nothing to see here.

Should have resigned Becht, who is bigger, and a better blocker, IMO.

Have to wait to see the terms of the deal.  Gilmore is a dud though.

I don't see how you guys are not excited about a 3rd team TE who went to bed Thursday night not expecting to hear from ANY teams till this weekend and then woke up to a ringing phone where his agent had surprising news that a team was interested in him and then agreed to a contract over the phone without making a visit...whew!

Not sure how you guys aren't psyched about that!

Surely this is sarcasm Boid...but I never know with you. That's what makes you unique pal!

Don't like the start of FA for us, not aggressive enough period. I want Florence and Marcus Stroud, trade or whatever.

Maybe good players don't want to come to Tampa, because of...who knows, I'll keep that to myself for now.

49ers are the big winners today!

Just as they were last FA period and that got them a whole load of no where come the regular season.

That being said, I'm not sure what the Niners did today that is so outstanding.

Patience people my goodness.  The market is 24 hours old.

The guy is a blocking TE with a little receiving skill, nothing more, nothing less. No one said he's the second coming of Kellen Winlsow. Pretty sure this isn't a news flash, but not every signing is going to be on par with Asante Samuel or Randy Moss. So don't have a heart attack when we get a guy like this to fill a need.
