    A year from now, the Bucs linebacker will be 30. He will be entering his ninth season. He will have a $10.75 million contract for 2020, none of it guaranteed.

    The Bucs may talk about how he hasn’t had the same impact as he did four seasons ago. They may say his production doesn’t match his pay stub.

    They may even question his enthusiasm for the game and be non-committal about his future with the team.

    In short, David knows he is a year away from walking in Gerald McCoy’s cleats.

    Lavonte David knows he could be next.

    These players always say it’s a business when they sign with another team during FA. I guess the business side of the game only goes one way.

    Already setting up next year’s offseason long approach of tearing down another great player for this franchise. Meanwhile mediocrity reigns supreme in Tampa. Fans love them some loser players.

    if David gets hurt this season (he does have a history, doesn’t he?), they’re really SOL, aren’t they?  no-name LB crew, crappy DL…..inexperienced DBs with a former first round pick Hargreaves being relegated to the sidelines ($ 9 mil/season option player)…..this is gonna be fun to witness —but they have Bowles calling plays…….-can I change my 5-11 prediction?

    Nope with McCoy it is more than just age and money. He is soft, weak, and never shows up in critical 4th quarter plays when it is needed to close out games. This new staff weighed and measured McCoy and wanted his dancing while losing on the sideline ass off the team.

    Soft? Really?

    A NFL career doesn’t mean you work the same job until you can’t anymore.

    It’s always gonna be balancing act between salary and performance.

    If they can find someone that can do your job at the same level or better for less, you’re gonna be hitting the bricks.

    It’s true McCoy has not played a full 16-game season since 2013, but he’s only missed eight starts in the past five years. That’s a pretty durable track record. He’s also gotten at least six sacks in every season since 2013, which is a rarity for an interior lineman..….Tampa Bay Times Columnist Romano

     

    Most of you Bucs fans complained about the defensive system last season, the DC, and the DBs…..had the DBs played better, I’m sure McCoy would have had several more sacks in his stats.

    David will be next big name to be cut after McCoy.  Hargreaves and Winston going would be interesting developments as well.  Team needs a fresh new hand, players and GM.

    I expect the Bucs to be big players in the next FA wave, going after roster cuts, and looking closely at waived players in a effort rebuild the middle of the roster.

    This team is top heavy and lacks decent mid tier talent after you get past the high salary players.
