Buccaneers to meet with WR D.J. Hackett Today and others

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are set to meet with Free Agent Wide Receiver D(eAndre).J(ames). Hackett today reports the Pewter Report. Hackett was a 5th Round pick in '04 out of Colorado. He missed 10 games last season for the Seattle Seahawks with a sprained ankle. He's missed 31 of 64 starts in his career, you would think D.J.'s ability to stay injured would scare off Allen and Gruden, but apparently it doesnt.

Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune is reporting that the Agent of Wide Receivers Bryant Johnson (Cardinals) and Drew Carter (Panthers) is weighing his clients collective options and the Bucs are apparently in the mix:

"We're going to take the next couple days and go over the offers we have and take it from there," said Joel Segal, the agent for Johnson and Carter, both [one] of whom are considering Tampa Bay as a destination. - Tampa Tribune.

I think a Bryant Johnson signing would be a step in the right direction. A signing like that would allow the Bucs to focus on a Cornerback in the first round of the Draft rather than having to reach for one of the available Wide Receivers... Excuse all of the scratch throughs, but WR Drew Carter signed with the Raiders last night...
