TAMPA - The free-agency signing period hasn’t even begun yet and already it appears the Bucs are out of the running for three of the top wide receivers in the class.
Randy Moss is expected to re-sign with the Patriots, Andre Davis has already re-signed with the Houston Texans and Bernard Berrian is expected to either re-sign with the Bears or sign with Tennessee, Minnesota or San Francisco.
Don’t fret, though, Bucs fans. The talent at receiver in this year’s market is moderately deep. It’s not great but it could be pretty good if a couple of players start playing up to their abilities.
We’re talking namely about guys such as D.J. Hackett, Bryant Johnson and Ernest Wilford. And truth be known, those are the guys the Bucs are probably most interested in anyway.
We’re hearing the Bucs have a great interest in Hackett and the previous association between Coach Jon Gruden, General Manager Bruce Allen and wideout Jerry Porter makes Porter, a former Raider, a logical target.
The Bucs are looking for speed at this position so Marty Booker is a possible target. So is Donte’ Stallworth. The Bucs had interest in him once before. Maybe this is the year they reel him in.
