My Man...Mr. Warrick Dunn

Warrick Dunn ( afternoon, the Bucs inked 12th year RB Warrick Dunn, fomerly of the Bucs and Falconsto a deal.  As is team policy, details of the contract were not revealed. 

Dunn was an unfortunate casualty of the McKay regime.  When Gruden first arrived in Tampa, we were unable to retain the unrestricted free agent due to our cap having been “McKayed.”  Bruce Allen, as we all know though, has handled the cap to perfection to the point where we are able to go after players like Dunn who fit the scheme and should produce.

Warrick Dunn ( is confusing Dunn with the 4th leading rusher in Tampa Bay history (himself) or the back that topped the 1k mark 3 times in his 6 years with the Falcons.  One thing is for certain though, he will be a valuable assett in his 2nd stint with the Bucs.  There are few better receiving options in the league at the halfback position.  He also seems to be a great complement to bruiser Ernest Graham.

I am uncertain at this point as to how our RB situation is going to shake out.  Ernest Graham, BJ Askew and Dunn would seemingly be locks to make the squad, with a “battle” for the last spot between Cadillac and Michael Bennet.  That battle though will most likely be determined by the health of Cadillac Williams.  Two weeks ago, RB seemed like a position we would target in the draft, but at this juncture, I do not see any 1st day picks being spent there.
