Cookie, I love ya man, you bring a lot of fire to this podcast and this site in general, but Defensive tackle was absolutely 120 percent still a need for this team after free agency. Beau Allen and Mitch Unrein are both career back-ups, and Gerald McCoy is 30 years old and has declined with every passing season. We were one injury away from being in the same exact predicament as we were last year. Vita Vea was an excellent pick that showed a great deal of sagacity and forethought from Licht. Much love and respect, hope I helped to… Read more »

If I was Jason Licht, I would have done exactly what he did in trading down to 12 and taking Vea with one caveat: I would sign Eric Reid to pair with Justin Evans. Compare Reid to ‘combine freak’ Derwin James: Ht Weight Arms Hands 40 yd Bench Vertical Broad Shuttle 3 cone Derwin James: 6′ 2 215 33″ 9 1/2″ 4.47 21 40.5″ 132″ 4.34 7.34 Eric Reid(2013) 6′ 1 213 33 5/8″ 10″ 4.53 17 41″ 134″ 4.22 6.99 Comparing Reid to Derwin you see: Derwin is a tick faster in the 40, 4 reps stronger in the… Read more »

Jordan, I missed the pick up of RB Jamal Morrow. Not one of the 14 UDFAs , not listed as one of 90 players on the Bucs roster. Maybe a tryout player trying to edge out one of the already signed UDFAs that has been invited to rookie camp on May 11, otherwise, I can’t find him.

My bad. You are right, Greg Auman tweeted that he is a try out player… Well the odds might be even more against him but I would love to see him make it to camp, I believe he would be a great change of pace back.

Hey, Don’t give up. He may be a long shot but you never know. Didn’t know him until you mentioned him. Didn’t have a highlight tape but I watched some game tape and he’s got skills. Hope he gets a shot!
