    I hope we can sign him, but I leaning towards he will test his market value before signing up as a Buc.

    For the right price, sure bring him back. but if he’s asking even top 3 RB money, I say let him test FA. I like Doug and all, but there’s no need to spend top dollar on the RB position these days. A good one can easily be found without consuming to much of a cap hit.

        Franchise tag is not a bad idea. I think Doug ran extremely hard this year in part because he felt slighted that we didn’t pick up the option on his contract. So with the tag it would ensure that he gets paid, but also needs to keep running hard if he wants to see another contract. Again I like Doug and would like to see him back, but if for some reason he does not come back I won’t we be to concerned.

    We can always use the immortal Bobby Rainey, who by some accounts is the Bucs best back. Yes, I’m being sarcastic.

    Good thought 76Buc. He’ll already be paid in the top three either way.

      That name makes me cringe scu. That guy led the league in taking a knee on kickoffs

    Yeah there’s no way we let him walk. Koetter was a big reason Dougie wasn’t traded last year. We have too many other needs to let the leagues second leading rusher walk out the door. And we have over 50+ million in cap space, not worries about what we pay him as our contracts are always worded so they can cut a player with no dead money after a year or two.

    Franchise tag sounds good to me. He gets his money…..we get Doug for another year and see if he can stay healthy 2 years in a row.

    I do think I would be looking for another running back in FA or the later rounds of the draft even if we tag him.

    I wouldn’t Franchise Tag him as it’s way too much money. Either get him signed to a three to four year contract in the next two months or move on. Go Bucs
