    Also at CB, Anthony Gaitor played well once healthy later in the season, and should continue to grow. I saw Leonard Johnson improve by leaps and bounds as a rookie last season, and have no doubt he'll get even better. Wright is still a fairly solid if not dominating 2nd CB, despite all the hurrah of last season.


Anthony Gaitor was a guy who showed up on game day once he got back. I have him penciled in as our starter Nickel/slot CB. I think he will do very well there this year.

Also watch out sir! While I agree with you that Wright is better than his last season, he's the most hated player on the forum this side of Quincy Black of 2011 or Mike Clayton in 2009.

    IMO, one guy who deserves to be talked about a bit and hasn't been much is our own Ahmad Black.
   
    JMO, but I think we will see a lot more 3-safety/2 LB formations this year from the Bucs. Black is a solid S, and is only gonna get better with more playing time. The trio of Goldson, Barron, and Black should make us that much tougher to go deep on.

    The acquisition of Goldson likely will move Ronde to a regular role as a 3rd down slot defender, as we don't really seem to need him at S this season. We still got a young developing Keith Tandy and hopefully a healthy vet in Cody Grimm at S too...

    Also at CB, Anthony Gaitor played well once healthy later in the season, and should continue to grow. I saw Leonard Johnson improve by leaps and bounds as a rookie last season, and have no doubt he'll get even better. Wright is still a fairly solid if not dominating 2nd CB, despite all the hurrah of last season. I see both Gorrer and Lewis as longshots.

    Daniel Te'o-Nesheim improved greatly at DE as the season unfolded. Excellent quickness. And before he got hurt Aaron Morgan showed some real flashes as a pass-rush specialist.

    I just look at all the big $$$ contracts thrown at FA CBs the last few years and how it totally skewed their teams' ability to maneuver under the cap later. A team may not make a splash on the ESPN front page, but slow and steady growth works better in the long haul...

i dont know how you can mention Lewis in the same sentence as anyone else in the league.. that guy couldn't make it in a varsity team at this point

     Trying to pass judgement on a bunch of raw inexperienced guys based on ONE partial season makes no sense to me. Geez, RONDE was pretty bad as a rookie as I remember... It's what they do after that rookie initiation that is way more meaningful. Did the young CBs play overall poorly last season? Absolutely, but IMO the jury is very much out as to how they develop given more experience. AND with some semblence of a pass rush...
     Good points on even Talib and Wright being ineffective at times too.

     LOL! I hear ya, BucNY ;D

    What happens with Wright will be interesting; I kinda figure if we land Revis, Wright will be gone.

Let's bring in every corner who was bad as a rookie, then. Every bad safety, too, since Lynch was bad as a rookie.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

correct me if im wrong but isnt he more of a run stopping safety/hard hitter sorta like what Barron is projected to be?

In 2012 Goldson had 3 ints and 11 PDs. That is better coverage than any of our CBs let alone safeties

A 37-yr old guy on the team playing his very first year as a safety begs to differ with you....
