    Well I hope this process leaves Spence out of consideration. Lots of DE’s out there which offer good talent and much better character.

    This is why the scouts that Tampa has its evualable information.The Team is looking for players that will worked well in the bucs system.This year is a difference sistutation then in the past.

    I would have loved to be in the interview with Spence to see and hear if he was more humbled by his drug issue experience and had truely learned from it for his life after football. Right now my excuse for not picking Spence is he’s too small, his combine showed little of his quickness and burst if he really has those tools, and his answers to the media pertaining to him getting kicked off Ohio State and dealing with his attitude pertaining to drugs.

    Horse, I agree with you totally about his size and weight. We have enough 6’2 250 to 260 guys with a lot of speed at the DE position as it is.
    As far as his drug problems are concerned, I don’t think that indicates he has poor character.
    That sounds like an ill formed ignorant opinion based on personal feelings.
    There have been plenty of people with good character who have suffered from drug and alcohol dependency.
    Substance abuse addiction is a chronic illness much like diabetes, tuberculosis, depression, etc.
    If you don’t believe me jme0151, go ask a qualified physician or do a little research yourself.
    At least next time you won’t sound so ignorant when you open your pie hole and belch out something stupid.
