So T.J. Duckett signs with the Lions.

Okay...

So let's see...they get Tatum Bell, who was a good player with the Broncos (but then, what RB HASN'T been in that RB factory lately???), and pair him with a guy who has a pretty decent short-yardage runner with the Falcons (plus he goes back to the state where he was a star for the State University). Pretty decent backfield eh?

Then they lose Cory Schesinger.

Hmmm...Shumway, if you're out there, you care to chime in on this?

And Kevin Curtis goes to...

...the Eagles.

Solid signing, after losing Stallworth they needed SOMEONE to step in. Still not a great receiving corpse if you ask me (Brown/Curtis/Baskett/Lewis/Avant).

And I ask again...anybody know a good jersey customizer in the DC area?

HOLY FU*K!!!!!

Ok this is shockingly good news. It gets us a starter to replace Niece who is, while a sentimental fan favorite, very inconsistant. And even better it gives us a replacement for Brooks once he decides to hang em up. Now hopefully this lures Doss our way as well to shore up the Safety position. Look out NFC South, it looks like we may just be back.

HOLY FU*K!!!!!

Ok this is shockingly good news...

That's EXACTLY what I said when I saw that on ESPN's bottom line this am as I awakened with my girl firmly clawclutching me. That's some good $#*^! My boys' whole LB corps is on the way out--let me back that up...the front line (read: the vets). This is a VERY good addition. And yes, getting Mike Doss would do wonders, cuz um uh...dude that's back there now at safety...nah.

So let's see...is THIS the year the Bucs draft dor DEFENSE? They've done a lot of offensive drafting the last couple years...while that D, much as I love 'em, just ain't getting no younger. Maybe ol' man Monte should get in Mr. Allen's ear a lil bit louder and get some good quality depth on the D side of the ball...and getting Cato was DEFINITELY the way to go with that.

And Mr. BF56...two things.

One, I am in agreeance with you that my cuzz definitely ain't getting no younger...he won't even tell us, but I think that he'll try to pump out about a good two or three more years before he think about retirement a lil more seriously.

And secondly...just in reference to the whole "56" thing...take that after one of the greatest Buc 'backers there ever was, one Hardy Nickerson?

Accually, nah. That was my first and last football number. I wore it from PeeWees through Varsity. Nickerson was definately one of my faves when I was younger though, and his number helps that a lot. Speaking of Nickerson, I found a Hardy RBK throwback about a week ago for $75. No way could I pass that beauty up.

Hey, big thanks to Bucfan56 for posting an NSFW comment in 200-point font so anyone's boss can read it from their desk 20 feet away and to everyone who then quoted it. :cursing:

Returning to the point here, seems Saints DE Charles Grant visited the Bucs even though he's a restricted free agent. If the Bucs sign him to an offer and the Saints decline to match it, the Bucs will owe New Orleans 2 first round draft picks. Make the deal, baby. We'll be happy to take that 4th pick and add Calvin Johnson to the NFL's #1 offense. :P

Sorry, I was in Pittsburgh all weekend. I love having 2, well 3 when K-Jones gets back, decent backs, although not having a good enough o-line still worries me. I'm assuming one of the three backs is going to go elsewhere, although I have no idea which at this point(and I just got a K-Jones authentic jersey too :D ). Losing Schlesinger's big, although hopefully another good FB will pop up. I haven't paid much attention to who's a free agent or anything, so I have no idea if anyone's available.

Heh, naw. My bad. Sorry bout that one, I was just a bit excited there (And still am). Didnt mean to get anyone in issues at work. But hey, I did semi-censor it. :P

Perhaps if you didn't make unfounded assumptions you wouldn't make an ass of yourself. People do have free time at their desks, you know.

Bucfan56, I was half-joking, not a big deal but could've been, that's all.

Rams sign LB Chris Draft to a 3 year deal and CB Mike Rumph to a 1 year deal.

I don't know, both signings add depth, but Draft's relatively small size (5-11, 232 lbs) makes we again want to know how the Rams' negotiations with noted Free Safety Bilbo Baggins are going. :wacko:

Chris Draft is a high-motor guy. I think he led the Panthers in tackles last season.

That's a bit of good news I guess, but if the Rams wanted a high-motor guy they could have gone after Fletcher a while back. I'd just prefer the Rams' defenders to be bigger for a change.

There's a bit of smoke brewing....the Falcons trading Matt Schaub to the Houston Texans for a 2nd-round pick (and possibly more).

Stay tuned.
