Tampa BayWatch – My Thoughts on the Bucs

Brian Kelly hits the Free Agency Market

with one comment

As expected Brian Kelly has opted out of the final year of his contract with the Bucs. By paying out $420,000 Kelly has made himself a free agent. Kelly has been looking for a big pay day for the past few seasons and hasn’t been able to get the Bucs to bite on a long term, high value contract.

However looking at Kelly’s injury record it’s obvious why the Bucs didn’t commit and will any other NFL team pony up big dollars for a CB that has spent more time on the sidelines than between the hash marks ?

So whats the future at CB for the Bucs now ? Philip Buchanon has filled in nicely, and Sammy Davis could fill in the Nickle position, however this makes me think that we need to pick up a top tier CB in this years draft or FA. I’ve seen some mock drafts linking us with Aqib Talib or Mike Jenkins but I certainly think we need some help.

In other FA news the Bucs resigned Michael Bennett to provide some depth in the RB position. Bennett showed some glimpses of form during his limited game time and should benefit from having spent more time with the Bucs offence.

  1. As a bucs fan, I’m with you on this one. He’s had the injuries over the past few years, and his talent is on the decline. It doesn’t help him that the bucs brought in Philip Buchanan to play along side of Barber. I totally think that the bucs go CB with their first round pick, probably the stud out of the University of Arizona.
