      We need talent build the team like jville two big name DTfrom freeagency/trades and draft the speed rushers on the end. Collapse the pocket.

      Find a shutdown corner spend the big money on D. 20m 2years won’t be bad

      Same thing was said about Marcell Dareus til he came to Jville for a 6th Rd pick and became a solid contributor

      Gotta Jump sometime! And he could be a great contributor! Or, he may not! You don’t know till he’s signed and brought in! Maybe, Baker wasn’t the problem…. Maybe, it was the system that the coaches were trying to use him in? Personally, I don’t give up on anyone after a single season!

      Having played another sport at a high level for a few years. There will always be good times and bad as a team and individual! The thing that’s hard to remember is if you are out of it or having a rough year personally then you need to focus on something else…. And I’ve seen some guys go about the paycheck, to the person sitting next to them, to the team! Our season was much longer than any other sport! I’ve played with team guys, me guys and honestly people who DGAS…

      But, in the end it takes all kinds to make a Team!

      Wilkerson used to be pretty good and he’s 28 years old.

      You guys that say pass are a bunch of jokes! You cry about talent then when talent is avaialbe you find anything to complain about. I guess guys can’t get a fresh start anywhere.

      I would be ok with a 1 or 2 year deal he may be a pain in the butt in some cases but the guys talent is not in question when he’s on his game he’s a monster and to put him in the DT spot next to McCoy they could really tear it up and it’s more talent and depth on the DLine that way in the draft we can focus on edge rushers but if you these 2 guys in the middle that will help who ever works the edge for us

      He’s been a DE in a 34 defense where he was really effective. He was playing really well every year until he problem his leg, he was actually balling out that year. But, since that injury he hasn’t been the same. Could’ve been the coaching change but everyone stopped performing. Richardson was doing pretty well since they drafted him but eventually got shipped off to Seattle. So, I feel like there’s something more than just his production falling off. Could’ve been he was no longer a fit there or just didn’t wanna be there anymore.

      With his past production and effectiveness at getting to the QB, I wouldn’t mind signing him to a 1 year deal. Kick him inside next to McCoy and have 2 interior pass rushers. If we can add some speed on the edges this offseason along with that move, it could change of defense around.

      @DEBUCSOWN

      I wouldn’t go as far as the Bucs best d lineman lol. McCoy constantly gets doubled and tripled team and he still manages to cause havoc. Not too many guys in the league can say that. McCoy is easily our best d lineman.

      I wouldn’t give him a big contract because of the decline in production, reputation with missing meetings (which says a lot), and injuries… But a one-year deal for, say 8 million, maybe.

      The same people that rail on and on about not drafting DL also support signing every huge FA. You can’t have it both ways.

      You don’t just run out and sign every name guy. There’s a reason he was released. If the guy is a problem child (missing meetings, etc…) and became unproductive when he got a big pay day, those are red flags and can backfire on your team. Let’s take exhibit A – Chris Baker… How many free agents became turds because they got paid in Tampa and thought they could just take it easy? A LOT! So, you gotta vet these guys and make sure they’re strong team guys and good locker room guys. You have to be choosey and not bring in lazy turds if you want to turn a losing culture into a winning one.

      Why would we want someone that quit after being paid. Didn’t we go through this already with Albert. Rather draft some young players.

      What does have to do with anything?

      Maybe he didn’t like management or got tired of playing there

      I don’t know about that! I mean he was playing when he broke his leg! If he was loafing or didn’t GAS then why would anyone care what he did even the Jets opponents!….Why would they need to block him? Let alone drop a cheap shot so he could snap his leg!….

      Bring him in! Bring in Richardson, Bring in Irving, Bring in Bennett, Bring in Okafor and draft Chubb!

      The Bucs should certainly be looking into signing him. Many factors can lead to a guy giving up. At this point depending on his lifestyle, he could retire if he just isn’t into football any more but I think it is more likely that the Jets have stunk and it diminished his will. A poorly run organization gets players to turn on it, simple as that.

      Buckner, Kwon and Jameis can probably light a fire under him!

      If Wilkerson was still balling he wouldn’t be available. I’m not sure what people are looking for but there isn’t going to be HOFers in their prime sitting on the street begging for contracts this offseason.

      When you have a desperate need for a pass rusher you look under every rock for one. You take risks on guys who have produced because the odds that he can regain some of his old form are a heck of a lot higher than some campmeat 4th stringer who’s on their fourth team in 2 years.

      Wilkerson was going to count $20M against their cap and The Jets want Kirk!

      Seems like there should be some really good players available for Tampa in two weeks.

      Most of the time players do things like miss meetings and arrive late so they’ll sure up the fact that the managers will not sign them back.

      Bill Belichick on line one!

      We got the money. Guarantee the first year only. Typically the Bucs preference anyways. I bet He’d get woke under Buckner!

      He’s been released. He’s available now! If they want him they can bring him in to talk/negotiate…

      Agree ~ Jet’s are clearing cash for a run at Kirk Cousins!

      Buckner was Todd Bowles DL coach from 2013-2014. Buckner will have the scoop on Wilkerson for sure.

      There is absolutely no excuse. There is no harm to bring the guy to Tampa, see what he wants and see if he looks motivated. If he crosses all the checkboxes you sign him.

      At some point the coaches and team needs to get production from the talent they get. We bring these free agents in and it’s nothing but failure then we blame the players. At some point we gotta realize there is a trend that this coaching staff can’t figure out how to get their players performing.

      Sign Mo set the team up with talent and if they gonna fail again it’s time for an upgrade in coaching. Then maybe, if we can ever get the right staff, they will be more then happy to work with a guy like Mo and get him playing at a high level. And no, it’s not just about Mo. Maybe the guy is just a quitter. But maybe a better staff wouldn’t fail to get a Ward or A Baker or DJax to perform. Maybe they could get one or two of the, to live up to expectations.

        yeah they were talking of a full rebuild when Rex Ryan left and then they started signing old dudes again! There were many articles that thought they wouldn’t resign him but then they let Richardson go instead! That was after his 10.5 sack season in 2013! Who wouldn’t want him?…. only a loser wouldn’t at that time!……

        And that entire Jet defense looks lost under Bowles!!!!….. Just sayin~
