We all know that Ronde is near the end of his time as a Buccaneer player. He might have one or two years at best as a starting corner for us, but everyone knows that he has always taken a leadership role in the locker room and that he likes to mentor and teach the younger players. So I say that we resign him for one year, but include language in the contract that brings him back after that as our Secondary Coach, or any other defensive staff position Coach Schiano sees fit.
Why not keep Talib, and wait out his legal situation. Maybe Coach Schiano's coaching style will have a positive effect on him. Then we can draft one of the top corners in the league, and team those two up with Ronde for one year. He can help them develop, and then after one year of playing with them, he will still be on our staff to help coach them.
There is no doubt in my mind that Ronde will coach somewhere, someday. Has there ever been a more diverse corner in the league? Imagine the things that he will someday coach his players to do. There is no doubt in my mind that it is in our franchise's best interests to lock him up now.
