Chev,to get the most out of Dunn imo ;)they will use him as a 3rd down back... and i'll bet you a coke on that...a rested  Dunn all year will make us very dangerous all year ...he may get some of the Galloway special treatment.
 Â    Imagine him and Bennett lined up in the backfield together with Joey,Antonio and another speed merchant picked in the draft....those LBS tongues will be hanging out.
 Â  Chev...your boy got a 2 mill signing bonus and will only count 1 mill on the cap...and if Bennett or a draftee does well this year they could cut him loose and not be out that much ....hes a very good insurance policy.

I feel ya bro.  Not a bad theory.  But you're on with the coke.  LOL  Can't wait for camp.  I'm getting a little moist with this plethora of signings...LOL

I like the signings - a lot more today.  But Chev - plethora is Haggerty's word man - careful it doesn't get used too much.  He about wore it out.... LOL

Graham starts but if he isn't running like last year will get benched for Dunn. Just heard Gil Brandt talking about how Dunn is a descending player now, so I don't expect him to be the feature back. I could still see them take a guy like Jamaal Charles in the 3rd or 4th round.

I think his biggest role will be as a return man. As of right now I don't see anybody that is a better candidate than him.

What we need is a bunch of pounding Graham behind Askew.  Over and over and over again.  That will move the chains, keep the defense fresh, and win us games. 

music to my ears.

Got a good center, 3-4 good guards, 3-4 good tackles, 3-4 good TEs, and now some wr options and a couple of RBS.  A few qbs.  Yea - pound the ball - then pass the ball, and have some fun...

Now to get a UT, LDE and a CB....

The Bucs will go with the en vogue multiple backs offense.  Not necessarily relying on one back to do all the work.  Mix in all three backs, and who knows, we might have another from the draft.

I really doubt the Bucs draft a RB within the first 3 rounds....IOW a guy expected to contribute all that much. It's now down the list of needs along with a few other positions.


Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

I believe my Sig says how I feel about the situation.

I do like Dunn being back with the Bucs, and believe that he will beat out Bennett as the #2 back.  With his speed, it will be fun watching the run game this year behind one tough looking O-line.  I believe Bennett and Darby fight it out for the 3rd spot.

Interesting you bring that up, as the 3rd RB is usually a ST guy, and I'm not sure about Bennett ir Dunn there

Bennett can return kicks. Make Bryant cover kicks!

Love that Dunn is back..

Starter will be Graham but Dunn lurking over his shoulder if performance is not stellar ( or he fumbles we all know Gruden)

That isn't a pleasant visual.

I think his biggest role will be as a return man.

Dunn will not be a return man.

RB by Committee. 

Graham 18-20 carries, 15 passing situations a game
Dunn 5-8 carries, 10 passing situations a game
Bennett 3-5 carries, 5 passing situations a game

That hasn't been JGs MO, but I hope he changes !  :)

Dunn is not returning anything, and Grahamn is doing the heavy running...

We still might get our future RB in the second round. But no doubt Earnest Graham is only going to get  better in my opinion, and if Carnell comes back it would be awesome backfield..

You must be accountable for your actions!
