(AUDIO) Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report: The Bucs Have a Decision to Make With Their Free Agent Linebackers
Scott Reynolds from Pewter Report joined Booger and Rich to talk about which free agents the Bucs may be bringing back next season.
Reynolds said the 3 linebackers: Dakota Watson, Jonathan Casillas and Adam Heyward are all major names on the free agent list for the Bucs because they all started last season. Reynolds said it’s not a huge role in a Tampa 2 system but you do have to have at least one strong linebacker there next to Lavonte David.
Darrelle Revis said he’s 100% while preparing for the Pro Bowl. Reynolds said that Revis is an asset to Tampa Bay despite his $16 million a year salary. Other young players like Lavonte David and Mike Glennon have low cap numbers making an extension for Gerald McCoy possible and they make Revis’ salary worth it.
Reynolds said he wants the Bucs to sign a proven pass rusher like Jared Allen this offseason. He said Da’Quan Bowers didn’t really pan out and you have to get pressure on QB’s in today’s NFL.
