    McDougald and Conte have been productive in the past, but are not game changers. It’s been said that it starts up front, so I am in favor of keeping the secondary from last year and adding players to put pressure on the QB. If Ramsey falls, I think the Bucs have to take him, but otherwise I would avoid top free agents like Eric Weddle, Eric Berry, etc. until a competent pass rush is in place.

    Confirms what I wrote yesterday.
    It’s nice to see Conte being loyal to his coach but he shouldn’t hold his breath waiting for Smith to return to the NFL.
    With $10 million in salary coming to him combined with his record with the Bucs, he has as much chance of returning to the NFL as do hooking up with Scarlett Johannson.

    Sign Eric Weedle first, keep Conte and Mcdougal. Sounds like Weedle will do anything to leave Chargers.

  4. 4


    I’m neutral on this either way. Wright, McDougal, Conte; they’re all backs.

  5. 5


    I love Weddle chetthevette, but his career is winding down and you can pretty much count on him signing with a contender.

  6. 6


    I believe he could be valuable with Tampa in 2016-2017

  7. 7


    They could do worse than Conte for sure. Depends on the money. If he stays healthy he can play.

  8. 8


    The bucs have to look for new starters at both safety positions. I like Conte and Mcdougald. They should definitely be on the team, but they are backups in this league.
