Sears Return Still Seems A Long Ways Away

TAMPA – Bucs guard Arron Sears has been through Tampa recently, though it does not appear a return to the team is in the works.

Sears has not been with the team since spring because of an undisclosed personal issue. He remains on the Reserve/Did Not Report list.

Should Sears wish to return to the Bucs, he would first have to petition the league for reinstatement by notifying Commissioner Roger Goodell in writing.

If Sears’ wish were granted, the Bucs would then be given two weeks to evaluate him and make a decision on whether to cut him, add him to the active roster or place him on the league’s Reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

The fact that Sears hasn’t played football since he participated in a few workouts in the early spring is a good indication that he won’t return to the field this year, even if he does seek reinstatement.

Bucs general manager Mark Dominik said he continues to remain in constant contact with Sears’ agent, but has no idea what Sears plans are or what the future holds for him.
