Free Agency Updates: TE Signed, LB Sought after?

The Bucs should announce the signing of TE John Gilmore to a Three Year Deal here shortly reports the Chicago Sun Times. Gilmore is excited to be a Buc and has already passed his physical. In 6 years, Gilmore has 21 receptions and 194 yards, the guy is clearly coming in to BLOCK

The Bucs have scheduled a visit for free agent TE Ben Troupe. I'd rather Draft a TE at this point, if were going to sign guys that are no better than what we have.

Briggs has re-signed with the Bears. Free agent LB Lance Briggs will reportedly meet with the Buccaneers. This is news to me, I mean with Derrick Brooks, Barrett Ruud, and Cato June (and Quincy Black to an extent), you would think our LB'ing Corps would be locked up, but hey, I know DB could be gone sooner than later so I can understand the Bucs looking to Briggs...

The agent for TE Alge Crumpler disputes a report that his client is close to signing with the Seahawks. I hope Alge doesnt go to the Seahawks, we need his services desperately on Offense, if Devery Henderson/D.J. Hackett are the caliber of WR we plan on bringing into Tampa.

After visiting the Saints on Friday, free agent DB Randall Gay is scheduled to meet the Buccaneers on Monday. I'd almost rather go to bat with Phillip Buchanon and take a gamble on the Draft than pay a Randall Gay type.

Bernard has signed with the Vikings. The Vikings are rumored to be set to offer WR Bernard Berrian a "Huge Contract"... I don't blame the Bucs for not breaking the bank for Berrian, he's a nice player and could potentially be a very nice player with a decent-to-good-QB, but still he's not Randy Moss.

The Bucs have added depth to the dline by signing FA DE Jimmy Wilkerson - Pewter Report

WR Donte Stallworth has signed with the Browns
