  • Godwin back on the franchise tag and Lavonte extended two years. Hopefully we can get Shaq back.

      I'm surprised they snagged Lavonte before Shaq, but I'm happy to have at least two guys back

      • Lavonte obviously made it an easier negotiation. Very team friendly. So glad he’s likely a Buc for life.

        Reading the tea leaves would indicate the team has confidence it can reach a deal with Shaq. I doubt they’d franchise Godwin if they didn’t.

        Lavonte’s deal is a big step towards bringing the entire core of key free agents back. Getting his cap hit down about $7 million from 10-3 is terrific. And there’s no doubt he could’ve gotten more than the AAV of $12.5 million had he chosen to test the market. He really gave us a hometown discount, and now the rest of the NFL is quaking in their cleats at the thought of the Bucs coming back virtually intact.

        • I was a bit skeptical, but it really looks like they will be able to bring back all the big pieces. Shaq back on a long-term deal, and they brought back Gronk on a 1 year deal. Hopefully we can get Succop and Suh back. Anything beyond that with AB and/or Fournette would just be a bonus.

          • Barret with the team friendly deal, and none of this would have happened if not for Brady

            • Everyone is chipping in a bit. Agree with Schmitz that we really need Suh and Succop. Brown would be gravy. Not sure I trust his better angels for another full year. Cray cray is hard to fully keep in check for that long. Certainly can’t imagine them paying more than a couple million for the privilege of taking that risk. Plus, it’d be best for the team if Tyler Johnson and/or Scotty Miller commanded more playing time and weren’t blocked by an aging veteran. BUT ... whatever Tommy wants, Tommy gets. And AB deserves some credit for being on his best behavior. So far.

              I feel similarly about Fournette for different reasons. He doesn’t have legal issues and he’s not old, but I’m betting the Bucs will draft a RB with one of their top 3 picks, so Fournette would block that kid’s development, which is important since RoJo could very well be an unrestricted free agent in one year. Also, if we’re gonna spend $3-4 million on a RB, I’d kinda prefer James White with his great hands and years of experience with Brady. Bucs have talked to the agents for both.

              • I haven't heard much about White until this offseason, hope we can get him, seems to check all of the right boxes
