I'm happy about this one... have always liked Troupe's game and I think we can utilize him the right way.

I like the move. Troupe brings a little something to the table.

Piece by piece boys and gals. Rome wasn't built in a day... ;)

Hey, we could still re-sign Stevens. Becht is now a Ram, though... our first "loss" in FA, I believe...

Don't forget Kalvin Pearson

Didn't Tennessee ask him to bulk up and become primarily a blocking TE? I don't understand that if it's true. He had a good year in '05. Over 500 yards and 4 TDs. If he can do that here along with Alex Smith, it's a great move.

No big deal ....

Actually, I was being facetious. I'd have been content with Stevens.

Addition by subtraction  +1 Troupe = 0 Stevens.

Stevens is more 'talented' but not worth the horrible press(and dirty feeling) we'd continue to take if we resigned him. I almost feel bad for Stevens given the report about him occurred 8 or so years ago and he was 'good' this year.......but I don't.

Nicely done by Bruce.  Maybe this will calm some of the dogs off for a bit. 

Troupe is a nice young TE that is freaky athletic and showed what he could do his first year in the NFL.  He'll be a nice compliment with the more all around Smith and the blocking Gilmore.

I thought for sure the Bucs would end up bringing Stevens back instead of going with an outside TE.  It doesn't shut the door, but Troupe is basically Stevens in terms of skill set.   The TE corp seems to be set right now. 

Solid signing by the Bucs.

This is a player who has 18 catches the last 26 games he has played.  He was good first two years but what happened to him?

Injuries, change in offensive philosophy when it comes to his responsibilities, and QB play.  Young seemed more comfortable throwing to his former UT teammate the other TE Bo (can't remember the last name).  Troupe can play in this league and be a solid receiving TE to team with Smith.
