Mark, I like what we have done so far in free agency. It seems a lesson has been learned and 1 year guarantees seems to be the theme. I really liked the Carter deal. isn’t Conte kind of a Goldson type? Why hasn’t Goldson and the Gilkey guy released yet? Looks to me we are drafting some OL in the higher rounds this year?

Mark, Enjoyed the Bruce Carter addition, But now with a lot of the top OL players signed with other teams are the Bucs interested in trading for OL players? Does the Mark Barron trade from last year hunt the Bucs this year at the safety position and do you feel the Bucs seriously interested in trading for AP? Demarco probably would’ve a better addition.

Don’t understand why all love for Winston.. A ? guy does not need to be the face of our team. With all the money and women he will have only spells trouble.

Mark, I don’t agree with Horse about liking what the Bucs have done in FA. We now have more holes then when we started with and no long term starters on the horizon. I know it’s early but we now are desperate for DE, OL help. How can you cut Johnson and take the hit with the money and have no one signed to replace him? I would think that would be covered in GM school 101. With the O-Line and thinking our OL coach likes Gilkey and Cousins, maybe the problem lies with the coach.

Kinderrt; This is a billion dollar Buc business and there is a plan and back up to the backup plan for DE and OL. We don’t have the inside knowledge of what is going on, but they surely aren’t winging it.

Horse, I’m sure that they have a plan to backup a plan. I just hope one of those plans are to go into the season with the same O-Line we had last year. If that is one of the plans it won’t matter if we have Brady under center it will be a disaster. Like I said earlier, it’s early yet so we have time to fix the O-Line and find a top pass rusher. When Lovie says “we just have to play better” it scares me. I don’t know about you but it sounds like he thinks he has… Read more »

We need a big back as well as Atlanta and Charlotte pummeled us with last year. Of course stupid Schiano gave away our two thousand yard big backs because he preferred schrimps at RB. We need to pick up 2 OL and a DE with our top picks and a decent backup center in the late rounds like the Gator Center Max Garcia who has Guard and Tackle experience as well, and good size.
