We also have over $25 million cap space for FA.

Dont forget mjs, Rice salary is like 10-12 mil next year I believe. Subtract his remaining bonus from that number, and Simeon Rice will save us an additional 5+ mil in cap room next year

No need to throw money at Simms, and a few other moves and Allen might have well over $30 millioin in FA.  I expect him to spend every cent of it trying to get the Bucs back on track next year......Gruden and Allen need a good year.

Spend every cent on who? It is looking like Clements and Briggs will be the only free agents worth big money.

We agree! Although, I think Gruden needs a good year. Allen's job is probably set.

Freeney still technically a possibility, isn't he?  I mean, I know it's hard to imagine the Colts not finding a way to resign him, but I hadn't heard anything about him signing an extention.

I can't see the Colts parting ways with Freeney. He is the Colts defense.

just cuz we have the money we dont need to sign just any body

Gruden and Allen will want to make an impact next year because it could be their last in Tampa if we have another losing season.  Spending cap room doesn't cost you anything in the future, so they may as well spend it.  Even if they use next years free space to extend a couple of players and give them a roster bonus, it is better that than not using the cap space.

Briggs would be a gift from the football gods. It's nice to have some cap room.

Maybe we use both to aquire another first rounder. Simeon Rice may be a big piece of bait come draft day. I have a strange feeling that we will be major players in New York losing Rice, Kelly, and maybe even Phillips for some picks.
