After rolling over $23.5 million in salary cap space from 2011, Bucs GM Mark Dominik expects to be one of the league's most active teams in free agency this offseason.

"We purposely rolled every penny we could into this year's cap," explained Dominik. "Clubs didn't have to do that, but we wanted to. We have plans." Tampa has been mentioned by various sources as a potential landing spot for free agents Vincent Jackson, Mario Williams, Brent Grimes, Curtis Lofton, and Mike Tolbert. According to figures compiled by ESPN, the Bucs' $60.5 million in salary cap space is second only to the Chiefs' $62.9 million.

They said this last year and the result was Punter/Kick off specialist Michael Koenen becoming their highest paid player.

The Bucs are basically saying they tanked 2011 free agent wise after a 10-6 finish in 2010 so they could.....sign free agents this year?

Reminder that sources within the Bucs organization (and nowhere else) reported that the team actually outbid the redskins for albert haynesworth but he took less money to play for a proven winner.

Basically what I'm saying is the Bucs are lying.

they actually didn't fall apart quickly if you take the entirety of like 2004-now as their collapse. look at their free agent activity and their first round drafting in that time period. 2 of 3 years under morris were hideous.

having four borderline hall of famers on defense and getting them in 2 consecutive drafts can really soften a landing.

Glazer's still own them? If so they are so up into making Man U win it's not funny.

The Bucs are full of poo. Why would a player like their targets go to a fading team?

And I too assume Fiz is drinking on this.. Great day.

Actually the exact opposite, since they bought them using the team as collateral, sold off their best player for 70 million pounds (to finish only 50 million in the black), and are trying to blackmail richer Man U supporters into buying them (and the debt) at a profit for the owners.

They're terrible owners.

They're terrible owners.

How do you rate JR, then? Just curious.

As far as spending on the team? Top of the list.

As far as his priorities? Last season indicates either a Machiavellian sense of strategy or an allegiance to the league and other owners over everything else.

Depends on what you think.

I just think he sees the "bigger picture" in regards to what happened last year.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

      Sent using the amazing CarolinaHuddle mobile app

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
