Why do you think the Bucs need to sign any FA linebackers?Here's my take...Fire Gruden.Hire WisenhuntFA prioritiesResign B.K.Resign SimmsResign RattayRelease RiceRelease BuchanonRelease Grad-who-skiSign Dwight FreeneySign Matt SchaubSign Ken HamlinDraftTed Ginn, Jr to mold after Galloway and be mentored by Galloway.
We might get one legitimate pro-bowl caliber players and two or three not much better than what is on the roster already. If Gruden wants to turn it around next year he needs to dig deep and get the most out of many players already on the roster.
2)Leonard Davis (This sign could turn the tide of an average OL)
I'm not sure why Leonard Davis gets the love he does. I mean I'm not A. Davis fan but I think that is pretty much swapping junk for junk unless you think he's strictly a backup. That AZ line was awful until they flopped Wells to ROT and dropped Latui in at ROG.
I think LD is an upgrade over AD.

I see him about every 3rd game (roughly) if he's in a game next to the game I'm watching so I don't get a lot of good looks at him. What do you see in him that upgrades over our Davis?
Does Pancho know anything about football or this team?That post belongs out in left field somewhere.

I think if you can sign LD for the right money, AD suddenly becomes a very valuable guy to you as a swing tackle.
Per the topic, here are my FAs:Jeff Garcia; Veteran WCO QB that can come in and be the starter as well as tutor for either Gradkowski or Simms if he re-signs or whoever they bring in via the draft Lance Briggs: He is well versed in the Tampa 2 and has the speed that 55 used to have. Winborn is apparently well thought of by Kiffin the the other defensive coaches, but Briggs is a huge upgrade.Nate Clements: Don't know if BK will recover from the foot problem and Clements is younger with good coverage skillsBucs to re-sign:White: Valuable swing player that can play either end positionBuchannon: Has shown that he is not afraid to tackle and his coverage skills are still very good
