I agree with Bucs_Rule - Hardy. As great as Rice was, I'm not sure the team gets in a position to bring in Rice if Hardy hadn't arrived to Tampa Bay first.

At least Harper put up a few yards. Garner barely suited up before he was toast.

Garner played 4 or 5 games before he tore up his ACL and that finished his career. He got good money but not crazy money. He had a fairly productive career until that point and I wasn't too upset about it. Steussie on the other hand had been in decline for the prior several years, everyone here KNEW that was going to be a bad signing.

And Clayton, while that would be a contender for the worst signing, I think the Alvin Harper contract was the worst. Clayton was merely the stupidest (runner up, Quincy Black contract followed by the Eric Wright contract), however Clayton was a Rah favorite and I'm sure Dom wanted to give Rah 'his' guys, but he should have been more fiscally responsible.

Dom much like Freeman is very inconsistent as a GM.

Yeah, but Harper's yards weren't worth the toxic presence and unlike Garner, Harper was supposed to be a transformational guy, a la Hardy Nickerson.

Have to pile on with another vote for Alvin Harper. Ugh. Just sends shivers down my spine thinking of that.

How about Hurt Emmanuel for honorable mention ?

Harper - he wins because my teeth still grind when he is mentioned.

Jackie Harris was a let down also.

Garner at the expense of Thomas Jones is the worst and as much as i love me some Simeon, Hardy was the best signing in team history.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Garner was fresh off of knee surgery when we signed him.

I have ragged on the Garner signing, but Alvin Harper quit on the team. He was a big giant alcohol, visit Taco Bell at 3 AM, rotten milk fueled diarrhea hitting the toilet, turd.

i think my HATE for Garner stems from the mistakes that followed. If you keep Thomas Jones, there is no Carnell. Maybe we take an Aaron Rodgers.
