The Buccaneers have publicly stated their confidence in DE Da'Quan Bowers' ability to stay healthy and upgrade Tampa Bay's pass rush. They now must hope they are correct as defensive end Michael Bennett is no longer a Buccaneer after signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.

i understand that bowers is an upgrade...but our depth is shot.  odd to me.

maybe he is planning on signing both freeney and abraham for passing downs.

One year only?   Interesting.   I think Bowers will be fine.  And you can't pay Bennett megabucks to be a backup.  Who knows, he might be back after his one year hiatus.

One year 5m? Haha, WOW. That market sure was hungry for Bennett.

I guess he didn't like that 3.5m/yr long-term deal Dom probably offered.

If Bennett sucks, what does that say about the Bucs Dline?   He was the best Defensive end they had.

They signed Avril and Bennett. Those were two guys linked to the bucs. Dom dropped the ball.  Look for a DE in the draft.  Probably in the 2nd or 3rd.

If they sign Revis, and we still have the #13 pick, Ziggy might fall to #13.

"Surely, revis iiisland will land in Tampa bay! ..Oh, the football GODS have reached down through mark D and told us that it is, our destiny... countless betrayers and cornerback pretenders will not cause us to deviate from revis iiisland!

We shalt smack thy face of the jet fan whom believes screligious claims of first round picks in return for revis! ....For he is so wonderious, that no first round pick could ever encompass his true value!

And let not the revis iiisland be tanted by cheapness, for his shoes shalt be built in gold. Gold, and WR hide."

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Says a lot about Bennett as well. He is ring chasing in Seattle, he wont get much playing time behind all those guys. Good luck getting that big deal next year buddy.

Says a lot?  He got shown the door here, period.  You have to be as blinded by the light as Beatles and Sparky to not see that.  THere doesn't have to be anger either way, but it's clear that it was the Bucs that didn't want Bennett rather than the other way around.

And I don't see anything negative about a free agent going to a competitive team.  Players are supposed to be interested in winning.

It's pathetic how if someone doesn't somehow take it in the rear for us he's suddenly a jerk.  If he went to a competitive team he's "ring chasing".  If he went to a struggling team, he'd be "only in it for the money".
