    Nice highlight reel!

    320 pounds of beef to deal with the big interior O-linemen, yet light and quick on his feet .. and a pretty good set of hands for stripping and recovering footballs. Seems like Chris Baker is a significant upgrade over Akeem Spence.

    His dance moves aren’t bad either … between Baker and DJax our team’s entertainment value shot up at least a couple of notches.

    Buc 1976

    Good move Bucs got bigger and stronger in the middle of the Line. This should really help the DE ‘s which also helps the DB’s. QB’s do NOT like getting hit Cam N.

    Vince Young? As far as “swag” goes, I knew nothing much about him before the headlines said we were interested in him, if he can play consistent and stay healthy, just by looking at his highlight film and other Buc fans can kill me for mentioning thins, but his style of play reminds me o Warren Sapp a little except Sapp made those plays consistently. Watch his highlight film again and you’ll see what I’m talking about regarding his running and tackling. In any case, I think he makes our defensive line better and not worse, especially for the price.
