    Good first step! Good luck to him, and I hope he is well & ready to go.
    A healthy, refresh, and clean Dougie on the team is good for the team.
    Go BUCS

    I am really rooting for Doug Martin and I hope he is on his way back to getting his life in order. The Bucs certainly will be watching him, however, two weeks isn’t long enough to come to a decision about Martin. I am a big supporter of
    Dalvin Cook and for Winston to grow as a quarterback, he needs an effective running game and I believe Cook could give the Bucs exactly that. My best wishes to Martin and I hope the Bucs add Cook with the 19th pick this month.

    I too am rooting for Doug to get his life in order and thankfully we have Quizz re-signed. I like the wait and see approach, but it shouldn’t stop the Bucs from looking at alternatives. Despite how much the team (and us fans) like him, I would hate to think that if there were a relapse for any reason that a whole season could be spoiled without adequate backup. It’s nothing against Martin or Quiz or any of the guys, it’s just that we went through RB’s like water last year and we just can’t have that if we are going to take the next step. Plus, the quality of RB in the draft cannot be overlooked.

    Well he has until October to either help himself or not. I hope the best for him and the Bucs too.

    Whether or not you are in Doug Martin’s corner, it is clear the team respects him as a player and he is a part of their football family. It makes no sense for the Bucs to get rid of Martin in favor of an unknown draft prospect. That prospect may be less talented and have more question marks. Cook has shoulder injuries, is lighter than Martin and is a fumbler. Mixon is a PR disaster.

    Bucs would have had the option on Martin’s contract after this season anyway, regardless of the suspension.
