Recently saw that Abraham not signed. I understand he's 35, but getting 10 sacks last year is pretty good and could provide solid leadership/coaching to Bowers/Claiborne. Even if he gets half that as a situational player would still be pretty good to have. Anyone heard anything on this in regards to the Bucs, as he's visiting TItans this week. I wouldn't harp on this guy, but 10 sacks is still very solid to me.

Id take him here. Clayborn and Bowers health worry me. Also concerned about their ability to get to the passer even with being healthy. I say bring him or Freeney in.

Wouldn't mind Abe but I think we aren't going to pursuit him barring a freak injury.

I'd want them to at least take a looksee if the price is reasonable.

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

Give them a one year deal that they cant refuse. We got the money.

I would like it even just from the mentoring aspect.  Niether AC or DB have had much senior leadership at that position...10 sacks wouldnt hurt either.

Every time I see last post JC5100, I have to click on it.... Pure comedy.

Saw rumors that he was signing with the Pats soon.

But I'd rather have Freeney too.

They clearly have tons of confidence in Clayborn,  Bowers,  and Teo'N. Hopefully they are right.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

given our recent history with injuries across the D-Line and what it can do to our depth, I cannot understand how they are so willing to roll with Bowers and Clayborn and no plan B. You would think there was a lesson to be learned when we saw how bad things fell apart after McCoy went out 2 years ago, and then Clayborn last year.

I'd like to see Abraham or Freeney signed, but I don't think the Bucs want to have to cut Teo'N, Morgan, or Means going into the season when they wouldn't if they didn't have Abraham or Freeney.

Cut Teo-Nesheim. Hes not getting after the QB at all. Get somebody who will.

Bucs seem to be high on Teo'N as a depth guy,  whether you agree with that or not. Don't see them cutting him.

I'll preface this by saying Abraham has been one of my favorite players in the NFL for a long time to watch, but Schiano would hate him. For one thing he's been injury-prone over his career prior to playing for Mike Smith and that's because Smith went really easy on him in practice and only played him between 600-700 snaps per season. Schiano would probably run him into the ground in June mini camp. Secondly, he's a pretty notorious drunken partier around Atlanta so that wouldn't fly with Schiano's family atmosphere. Lastly, he really marches to his own drummer and isn't your typical veteran instructor.

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

FRG, I thought being injury prone was a prerequisite for playing on our D-Line, not a deterant to
