Scout.com is reporting that a league source has informed them that the Bucs have given FB BJ Askew a contract extension that “will make him one of the top three players at his position in both signing bonus money and in average compensation per year.”
Great news in my opinion. BJ Askew is one of the best blocking FB’s in the league. He is a do it all kind of guy for HC Jon Gruden; blocking, the occasional run, and catching the football.
While Askew is not admired and deified around the Bay Area like former Bucs great Mike Alstott, I think he brings more to the table.
