I had very low hopes at the start of free agency that the Buccaneers would be highly active. Not that I didn’t want them to take a look around a free agent and potential trade bait pool that seemed to have many options that would help the Bucs, it’s that I knew we would spend no money.
Aaron Kampman, Tony Pashos, Kassim Osgood, Artis Hicks, Kerry Rhodes, Kevin Walter, Anquan Boldin, Dunta Robinson, Karlos Dansby, Antrel Rolle and Antonio Cromartie all would have been players who would have really helped the Buccaneers in the areas of our greatest need, DE, T, WR, S, CB, LB.
The Bucs apparently were high on Aaron Kampman, calling him our “#1 free agent priority” but obviously that priority was pretty low. The fact that Anquan Boldin and Kerry Rhodes were traded for 3rd and 4th round picks respectively and the Bucs were not involved in either of those negotiations not only irks me, but more succintly, pisses me off.
I’m disenchanted with this franchise, their lack of spending on a team capable of winning, and the rhetoric coming from management and the front office, trying to dupe people into believing that this all part of our “rebuilding” process.
I received my third late notice for my season tickets yesterday, and once again, I will not respond.
